Possible reasons:

1. You might have got a blend of office apps. i.e Some office apps are 2003 and some apps are 2007.

Knock out all the office Installations and isntall a fresh Office 2007.

Moss uses 'access' components to open the datasheet  view. Sharepoint 2003 used Excel components.

2. Do not have enough permissions on the list.

add, delete, edit  and view permissions are enough for the standard view.
But, datasheet view requires 'BrowseUserInformation permission'. So, if you are using custom permissions.. go a head and check the box.
