This "spreadsheet" and "data-entry" stuff seems like the wrong way to go
about things!

Using a spreadsheet to split out subnet lists seems like way-over-kill.
Don't you already have routing tables or other configuration data that
lists all this stuff somewhere?

As for needing to do data-entry, well all the data comes from computers
in the first place.  It should only take a competent programmer a day or
two at most, and maybe even just an hour or two at best, to hack together
something to manipulate it from one form to another as required.
