Data Sheet won’t show on Basic SharePoint Foundation

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -



I performed a Basic SharePoint Foundation (beta) using Win 2008 R2 x64 server and also installed Office 2010 on the same box. When I try to view a list in Data Sheet view, I get the following error message. Help me to fix this issue.





Message from webpage

The list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view for one or more of the following reasons:

-A datasheet component compatible with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation in not installed.

-Your Web Browser Does not support ActiveX Controls.

-A component is not properly configured for 32-bid or 64 bit support.

Data Sheet won’t show on Basic SharePoint Foundation


Hi Donald,
The error is because the 32 bit version of Office is installed in your system.
The solution to the error is:
1) For the first error, you need to install the Office 64 bit version.
2) The Active X Control needed for the DataSheet View is incompatible with 64 bit Office version. To resolve this error:
a) Check for 32 bit version of office is installed where IE 8 is installed
3) Install 32 bit versions of only Office Applications as both 32 and 64 bit complete versions cannot reside on the same OS
