If you are using a 64-bit version of an Internet browser, for example the 64-bit version of Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0, there is no support for the Edit in Datasheet component.
Also, you must install all 64-bit versions of Office products before you install the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components. Therefore, if you have to have Microsoft Project 2010, Microsoft Visio 2010, or Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 (These components are not installed as part of an Office 2010 suite), please install the 64-bit versions of these products before you install the Data Connectivity Components.
If you try to install the 64-bit versions of Project, Visio, or SharePoint Designer after you installed the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components, you receive the following error message:
- Remove the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components.
- Install the 64-bit versions of the Office products that you want to have installed.
- Reinstall the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components.
