variable-length input table

I'm writing a short program that processes user-supplied financial data
and finally plots the results. I'd like to arrange it so the input is
via a table that the user can see and edit, and to which cases can be
added. Is an extendable table possible?

Right now input is by way of

CreateDialog -> Grid -> InputField

and this produces a mini-table, one per case. As soon as all the input
for that case is done, the table disappears and a dialog asks if there
are more cases. Instead of a temporary mini-table for each case, I'd
like to have a single, persisting table to which I can add cases as
needed. The number of cases can't assumed to be known ahead of time.

I know Manipulate has a variable number of adjusters, but don't see how
to apply this to my needs.

Any suggestions for doing something like this? Thanks.
