Datasheet view is disabled SharePoint 2010

Client machine attributes:
OS- windows 7
Explorer- IE9, 64-bit
SP version- SP2010

One of my users has reported an issue that he is facing some problems while using datasheet view. Further probing, we know the truth that he has created a custom list and then trying to click on ‘datasheet view’ but the option is disabled i.e. datasheet view is greyed out.

Error message:
This control is currently disabled.





Resolution:
Million thanks to Microsoft for publishing this KB and make it available to us to understand the background as well as resolution on this issue.


As per this article:
You can install the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components to enable the Datasheet component. These components are available from the Microsoft download center:

Concrete Fix:
Go for a 32-bit office version, rather than 64 bit.
