Unexpected error using datasheet view for SharePoint Lists

Posted in Sharepoint by Abhishek Bhowmick on June 26, 2010

You get an error – An unexpected error has occurred when you try to edit a list in datasheet view.

This occurs as a result of sorting and grouping of the list view using the same column name at the same time creating an ambiguity for datasheet to display in a tabular format.

To fix this we will need to modify the list view and either Sort or Group By using that column name.
