MS Access 2007 - Enter data in spreadsheet format

I am creating a parts database.  I have the following tables.

ProjectSystemXfer (Associates Project & System)
SystemPartsXfer (Associates Systems & Parts)
PartsContractXfer (Associates Parts & Contract)

The user is requesting to create a Contract.  Then they want to add parts in a spreadsheet format.  

How do you provide data entry in a spreadsheet view that will allow the user to select a project to filter the system which will filter the parts and add the part to the PartsContraxtXfer with the appropriate keys?

I gave them the solution LSM suggested based on Jeff's reasoning.
