SharePoint 2013 and Datasheet View in Office 2013 64bit

Posted on 2014-08-28

I know SharePoint 2010 did not play well if Office 2010 64bit or Office 2013 64bit, especially when trying to use Datasheet view on a list.
Does SharePoint 2013 w Office 2013 64 bit have the same issue?
 I'm thinking it is still a problem, since Office 2013 64bit was missing a datasheet component, but I want to confirm that it is still an issue.

    According to the following, this will now work for SP 2013 and Office 2013 x64;

    "In addition to controls that load into Office applications, there are web-based solutions that use ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer. Office 2013 Datasheet views that are created by using a SharePoint Server 2013 work on any platform and in browsers other than Internet Explorer. The SharePoint Server 2013 Edit in Datasheet view doesn’t require a client-side control. For example, if a user has Office 2010 64-bit or Office 2013, Edit in Datasheet will work correctly on SharePoint Server 2013."
