  • Hi,

    By default, the Datasheet view of a list or library is not supported when you are using the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office installed on a 64-bit Windows operating system. It's the limitation of 64 bit Office suits.

    For more detail information, please refer to the following link:

    Hope it's helpful.

  • I find it somewhat surprising, to say the least, that this limitation has not been lifted yet - eight years after the first 64-bit version of Office.

    First I thought the reason was the lack of a 64 bit version of the needed ActiveX control. But since ActiveX isn't supported at all by the Edge browser (which only comes 64-bit) in Windows 10, I guess the reason lies somewhere else.


    UPDATED: And now I've learned that "quick edit" (or "datasheet view" before SP 2013) doesn't use ActiveX, but HTML/JS. So is this limitation really still there?!
