I currently have a SharePoint Foundation 2010 list that displays an "edit" column that allows one to click the icon and jump directly to the edit page for the selected item in the list. I'd like to show the same link in the datasheet view. Is this possible? If so, could you please tell me how to do it?

Hello,

The Datasheet view does not offer that functionality out of the box. The view only shows columns with values, but does not have columns with Javascript functions, like the edit link. The Datasheet view is similar to an Access table rendering of a SharePoint list.
