Survey/Interview Data Collection Tool Needed

I will be traveling to a remote location to interview key informants for a research project. I am looking for a convenient interface which to enter the data.

I was attempting to use LibreOffice but it seemed buggy/untrustworthy. I gave up on it.
-I do not want to mess about in the master sheet of collected data. I am looking for a form or other type of thing that can be linked to a database. The idea is that I will be able to input answers and comments, but that other data from previous interviewees will not be displayed (nor will it be possible to accidentally edit them). But that at the end I can output a csv or ascii file to work with in STATA.
-I want to fill in answers on my laptop as the interviewee is being interviewed. Internet access is not a given, so it appears surveymonkey and the like are out.
- Ideally I am hoping to accomplish this in Excel, or something else that is already installed on my Mac.
What's the best way?
