If this is a one-off, any spreadsheet should be OK.

There are many database solutions, but one of the easiest to set up is
XAMPP (a LAMP solution) from ApacheFriends:

This installs Apache (web server), MySQL (database), PHP & Perl
(programming languages). It also installs phpMyAdmin
http://www.phpmyadmin.net/ to administrate the MySQL tables. It is best
if these packages have not already been installed on the server.
