Hi,

I create an empty datable then fill data to it.
Then I bind it to datagridview.
The display at datagridview is fine, order by "TrsDate, DOrK).

Then I print the data to excel using datatable.
dtTable.DefaultView.Sort = "TrsDate, DOrK"

For each dtRow as datarow in dtTable.Rows
     Print
Next

The problem is the ouput seq is not as I expected.

What's the problem?

Thank you.

I don't think that actually sorts the data, but just sorts the display of the data (someone correct me if I'm wrong as I'm not a big DataGridView user.  You could sort the data before it hits the DGV (ie. add an ORDER BY clause to the SELECT statement that retrieves the data the DGV is binding to).

My question is quite obvious, unless you don't understand since you are not familiar with it.

I have found the answer over the net.

Thank you for your time.

Just change:

dtTable.DefaultView.Sort = "TrsDate, DOrK"

For each dtRow as datarow in dtTable.Rows
     Print
Next

To :

 Dim dv As New DataView(dtTable)

 dv.Sort = "TrsDate, DOrK"

 For Each dtRow As DataRowView In dv
     Print
 Next

Isn't it obvious and simple solution? Just spend a little time if you are familiar with it.

Thank you.
