Hii All,

   i am using wss 3.0 and i needed column permission for sharepoint list. i used sharepoint boost columnpermission but it doesn't work for datasheet view . it's only work for standerd view. And our all user use only datasheet view.

So do you know any other feature so i can use with datasheet view..

What is the trouble? Do you want to lock columns, or unlock columns?

SharePoint Column View Permission is a very powerful tool I encountered. I am not sure it can do that, but it claims SharePoint Views and list fields are under its cover.

As far as I know there is no solution that will hide the columns user does not have permissions to. All solutions I know of will prevent you from seeing the entire view.
You can try this one - SharePoint Column Protector - This is a product my company makes. It has a 30 day trial, so you can check if it does what you need.
If a view contains columns that are not accessible to given user, then the view is hidden, but rest of the page is visible. The SharePointBoost will show you an "Access denied" page.
Also SCP protects datasheet view and allow you to manage permissions on per content type basis.
