We have a bunch of users who like to share and collaborate using Excel spreadsheets and inventory. In a couple of months, their will be a new ERP system installed, but until then I would like to put that information in a MSSQL database.

Other then:
a) internal created web pages
b) linked sheets from Excel to Database

what is a good software that will allow them to view/add/edit data in an Excel like format? Is there a good/free web based software that allows simple add/changes?

>> We have a bunch of users who like to share and collaborate using Excel spreadsheets and inventory.

I would suggest the below approach:

1. Import data from all Excel spreadsheets into SQL Server
2. Use either Access or Excel sheets to work on those data or create a simple application for the users to modify data.
3. When your ERP is configured, import records from SQL Server or use an ERP with SQL Server as backend.

Best one would be to write a simple VB or C#.net Windows application to suit your custom needs.
