If you want spreadsheet functionality, have you considered embedding a spreadsheet?
e.g. the Microsoft Office connector functionality, or the Google Docs plugin?
Your data shouldn't mingle with the text, it should be a separate object so you can include it on several pages and perform calculations on it.
I'm building the Play SQL Spreadsheet tool so people can create tables, then insert them on wiki pages. This way, you can also write queries to get the sum, average, max and min and make graphs.
For any calculations in Confluence, including calculations over tables, you may use CelesteCS Math for Confluence.
Assume you have a table with three rows and three columns: A1 till C3. Then here are the simplest examples of formulas you may use:
MAX(Table1.A2:C3) - MIN(Table1.A2:C3) AVG(Table1.A2:C3) / SUM(Table1.A2:C3)
As you see, it is very simple and is similar to EXCEL with equal set of functions.
There is a plenty of other functions in the macro, so you may perform any calculations using formulas in EXCEL style.
