"Edit in Datasheet" view

  Asked By: Zane    Date: Aug 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5294

I've got a list and I've added some columns, but they don't show up in Datasheet mode. The help suggests that you can edit this mode in FrontPage but I can't figure out how and Google hasn't helped.

Is this possible or is the help text wrong? If it is possible, what steps do I need to take to change the columns, etc, visible in the datasheet?

You need to edit  the view  to make sure the columns  are displayed. Go to “modify settings and columns”, click the view you care about down at the bottom, then click the check-boxes for the fields/columns you want to show  up.

It looks as if it is a "feature" in SharePoint.

In other words, it doesn't work in the default view. However, if you've got additional views, you can put them into Datasheet mode  and the extra columns  then show  up!
