I have an Risk/Issue where the user selects from a drop down list if the item is an issue or a risk.

Two fields severity and probability calculate together to give a score for Risks in my list. My problem is that I've been asked is it possible to make probability read only if the user selects an issue when creating a new item.

Is this possible to enable in the datasheet view in an standard SP list?

You can use javascript/jQuery or InfoPath to customise the list form and apply business logic. This is not possible in a datasheet view.


CSR might help you. Using JSLink you may be able to achieve this. Here is a blog, Quick Edit supports JS Link and Client Side Rendering, explaining the same.
