Exporting VB6 Datagrid to MS-Excel

I want to export the contents of my datagrid to an excel document..

what i have is almost working, except it will only send over the visible information... (i.e if the contents of the datagrid is longer than 1 page, it will not send the information contained "off the page" to excel).  In the code itselfI have "VisibleRows" in it... there is no other argument I can find for DataGrid ...

This is the code I'm using:

Dim Appli as New Excel.Application
Appli.SheetsInNewWorkbook = 1
   Appli.Visible=True
   Appli.Workbooks.Add

For i = 0 To DataGrid1.VisibleRows - 1
For j = 0 To DataGrid1.VisibleRows - 1

  DataGrid1.Row = i
  DataGrid1.Col = j

Appli.ActiveSheet.cells(i + 1, j + 1).Value = DataGrid1.Text
Next
Next

I use this to go through a datagrid:

For intRow = 0 To .ApproxCount - 1
  'Some stuff here...

   'Incrémente la ligne (ne surtout pas enlever le "On error...")
   On Error Resume Next
   .Row = .Row + 1
   On Error GoTo 0
Next intRow
0

You can use this code to be sure you are the top:

Public Sub GridGotoTop()
    With gctlDataGrid
        If Not (.DataSource Is Nothing) Then
            If .VisibleRows < .ApproxCount Then
                On Error Resume Next
                Do While True
                    .Scroll 0, -10
                    .FirstRow = 0
                    If Err.Number <> 0 Then Exit Do
                Loop
                On Error GoTo 0
            End If
            If .ApproxCount > 0 Then
                .Col = 0
                .Row = 0
            End If
        End If
    End With
End Sub

then loop through the grid with the code I have provided before.
