Installing the Datasheet View app

Installing the Datasheet View app

The KWizCom Datasheet View provides the exact same datasheet user-experience as the one that was available in SharePoint 2010 server, by using the same Microsoft ActiveX control. Unlike the SharePoint 2010 Datasheet view, the KWizCom Datasheet is available not only in IE, but also in other browsers: Chrome, Edge and Firefox.

The KWizCom Datasheet View includes the following modules: 

  1. Datasheet View app
    this app is part of the KWizCom Modern Apps package.

  2. KWizCom Client Agent
    This desktop executable includes the Datasheet ActiveX component. It will be downloaded to the end-user's desktop on the 1st time user clicks the "Datasheet View" ribbon button.
