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
Private Sub cmdExport_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdExport.Click

        exc = New Excel.Application()

        Dim r As Integer

        Dim c As Integer

        Dim CellsRange As Excel.Range
 

        If exc Is Nothing Then

            Console.WriteLine("ERROR: EXCEL couldn't be started")

            Exit Sub

        End If
 

        exc.Visible = True
 

        Dim workbook As Excel.Workbook = exc.Workbooks.Add

        Dim WorkSheet As Excel.Worksheet = workbook.Worksheets.Add

        For r = 0 To gridResults.Rows.Count - 1

            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
 

    End Sub

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
