As far as I know the tktable widget (http://tktable.sourceforge.net) is a quite advanced
spreadsheet widget, and there is a Python wrapper module in the demos directory, I never used
it though.
Another option is the Tix.Grid, unfortunately there is only a partially implememted (and partially broken)
python interface included in the Python-2.5 Tix module.
For more functionality you can try the Tix.Grid wrapper I wrote a while ago (http://www.8ung.at/klappnase/TixGrid/TixGrid.html),
however it is not much tested and the tixGrid itself seems to be alpha or beta quality, some
methods do not seem to have any effect.

I hope this helps
