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

see this also

private void ExportLinkButton_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
  string strTitle = “put the grid title here”;
  new DataGridExcelExporter(this.YourGridName , this.Page).Export(strTitle);
}
where,

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.
