I have a list that I have created in SharePoint 2010. Some of my customers prefer working in “Datasheet View” only. Can they change the font color to red in while in Datasheet View, or do they have to use Standard View? Is there another application (CorasWorks) that we can use to be make this happen?

No, unfortunately you cannot re-format the datasheet view. Can't change the font to red.

Options available for customising the datasheet view are very limited.

See this helpful thread and this blog post.

I'm not sure if this could be accomplished with 3rd party software.
