How to read DataGridView to String Variable seperating each field with a Tab character

I am using the DataGridView to allow users to enter a variable amount of information from an Access DB.  At the end of the application it sends an e-mail with other form data but I would also like the contents of the data grid to be included in the e-mail.  The e-mail is working with form field based content but the dataset/datagrid view is new.

How would you store the contents of the DataGridView into a String variable with the following formatting?

- Each field value seperated with a tab
- If the DataGridView dataset has no rows then the value of the entire string variable should be N/A.

Example (Dataset has data):
Field1      Field2      Field3      Field4
Field1      Field2      Field3      Field4
Field1      Field2      Field3      Field4
Field1      Field2      Field3      Field4

Example (Dataset has no data):
N/A


The Datagridview is named datagridTransport
