Transfer System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid contents to MS Excel

Hi,

I have created my own sligtly customised grid. It inherits from System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid . I know the changes I have made change it from what the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid but my changes are nto that dastic.

However, the key part to this question is - how can I easily and efficiently tranfer the contents of all my grid (assue if you like that it is a System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid object) to MS Excell (2002)

Hope You can help

BTW I'm using .Net 1.1 to create my winform app

Thanks

strTitle is the title of the DataGrid.
DataGridExcelExporter is the name of main class.
this.YourGridName is the DataGrid object.
this.Page is the current Page object.

Also - I've noticed my dataset has more information than what my grid displays. THe grid is configurable so I only show my user what they want. Hense I only want to export what is in the actual grid compared to what is in the DataSet.

THANKS
