Best approach to store data for R usage

Dear community,

I am having several pen-and-paper survey questionnaires which I want to process using R.

Is there any recommendation which data entry program offers best advantages for data storage?
Generally, I can use Excel or SPSS for data entry, but I want to know whether there is a better approach (e.g. for pre-preparing variable types during data entry, etc.).

I am aware of the fact that R has many possibilities to import data.

Thanks a lot in advance
