Notes to Inheritors

In Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, columns based on custom field types do not appear in Datasheet view and are not included when you export a list to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
