No Datasheet view

This is a brilliant webpart with one flaw; no datasheet view. Other users and I use the datasheet view to tag dozens of documents at once.

Is there a way of getting the datasheet view to work with this part (with all tags)?

Or is there another way to do batch tagging?

As far as I know, Microsoft does not allow any custom field types to run in datasheet, since it is not a web control.

Your only option, would be to convert the field back to its base type (lookup, text, etc...), use the datasheet then, and when you are done - convert it back to your custom field type.

obviously, you will lose any special features of the field type during editing in datasheet, but not the data.
