Using the sharepoint datasheet view in a custom ASP.NET application

Hi,

I was wondering whether anyone knows whether you can use the sharepoint datasheet view control in a custom ASP.NET application? Ideally, I'd like to load the grid with data from a data table, alow the user to make changes vie the datasheet view and then post this back to a database.

If anyone has coded this functionality using the datasheet view, OWC or some other means I'd be interested in finding out how you did it?

Thanks in advance,

Jay.

No you cannot.  Sharepoint has it's own custom ISAPI .NET DLL  You have to work within Sharepoint on a Sharepoint server.
