This question already has an answer here:

For LaTeX tables editor, I am using LaTable version 0.7.1 which is good to a large extent. The only problem I have (so far) with this editor is the ability of adding multi-lines in a cell.

Can someone suggest a powerful table editor for LaTeX?

Have you seen excel2latex ?

There are a couple of other options here.

What is the meaning of az in az.ctan.org? – Herbert Jan 14 '11 at 7:04
@Herbert: Maybe "Azerbaijan"? – Hendrik Vogt Jan 14 '11 at 9:53
It is both the first two letters in azTeX and the last two letters in ke1az, my ham call. – Jim Hefferon Jan 14 '11 at 16:46

You can also export tables to Latex in Gnumeric. It has several options of doing so (inline, or full page).

I'm a little disappointed with this feature. The full document export is much too complicated for me to cut and paste into another document, and the table fragement option appears to lose all formatting (at least, it loses multicolumn cells, and all alignment choices that I make.) – Ken Bloom Jan 13 '11 at 14:27

A nice online service, though not very powerful, is that LaTeX table editor:

There's the latable package. It is described as a LaTeX table editor for Windows and Macintosh machines with the following features:

  • real-time LaTeX code preview;
  • limited clipboard support for import/export into other spreadsheet and text editors;
  • CSV support;
  • support for tabular, array and custom environments;
  • custom column formats.
