The list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view – SharePoint 2010

Ever seen this message.

Datasheetview

It seems that when you have Office 2010 64bit isntalled, or no office at all, this message is generated by SharePoint when trying to open a list in Datasheetview.

The reason is that it depends on functionality that is part of office 32bit.

So , how can we fix it. According to Microsoft there are 2 methods. Take  a look at this page to see which methods.

I think there is only one (is also mentioned on the MS support page). Install the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity.

After installing everything is working as intendend.
