No, that gets rid of column headers, ie. first row.. i want to get rid of that grey 'column' on the left
no! this hide the grey column on the left. have you tried it?

the ColumnHeadersVisible property hide/show the column's headers
the RowHeadersVisible property hide/show the row's headers

try it and let me know. i've tried it and it works fine.
