I am trying to use the autofit function to fit the data into the excel columns from a vb.net application.

However, i keep getting the following error when running the Autofit function:-
{"Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC"}

Many thanks
Dan

            For c = 0 To gridResults.Columns.Count - 1
                WorkSheet.Cells(r + 2, c + 1) = gridResults.Item(c, r).Value
            Next
        Next
        For c = 0 To gridResults.Columns.Count - 1
            WorkSheet.Cells(1, c + 1) = gridResults.Columns(c).HeaderText
            WorkSheet.Cells(1, c + 1).font.bold = True
            WorkSheet.Columns(c).autofit()
 
 
        Next

Thanks for your reply.

I replaced the line:-
WorkSheet.Columns(c).autofit()
with
WorkSheet.Columns(c).AutoFit()

However, i get the same error.

Here is the solution I came to:-

I changed:
WorkSheet.Columns(c).AutoFit()
To
WorkSheet.Columns("A:Z").AutoFit()

It autofits all the columns instead of one at a time, but that doesnt both me.
Thanks for your help
