How can I automatically calculate sums in a LaTeX table?

Does anyone know if the is a TeX/LaTeX package which will make an ordinary tabular environment work as a simple spreadsheet? I am using LaTeX to generate invoices. The invoice is a tabular environment with one row per item and the item amount in the last column. The item amount is entered as a simple number, then a macro prints it with the $ sign. I am looking for something that will add up all the numbers in the last column, calculate the total and show it in the last row, last column. Thanks. Buddy.

You can use the datatool to either generate the data or read it in from a CSV spreadsheet file. The package can do calculations on the data from within your document as well.
