In theory, a LibreOffice Database report should be able to do something
like that, but :

- if you bind a Calc or Excel file, you will not be able to write/edit
any of the data in the bound Calc or Excel file, as these become
read-only - in order to update the sheets, you would have to open them
up separately in Calc, do your editing/updates, etc, and then re-open
the ODB file;

- binding Calc or Excel files as text file data sources within an ODB
means you are limited to the column headers for your field names -
anything else is just a value (text string, date, integer, etc);

- if you import the data to an ODB file, via the data import wizard, you
will have more flexibility in what you do with that data, but you will
lose the direct link to the Excel/Calc file, so changes you make to the
latter will not be reflected in the ODB file, until you reimport the
data into your Base file - this might be too much of a hassle for most
