Is there a good way to transfer the backcolor of a Datagridview to Excel using Vb.net? I have working code but it's very slow.
For intTube = 1 To intTubeCount

                            GetActiveChild.tspbThicknessData.Value = GetActiveChild.tspbThicknessData.Value + 1

                            If GetActiveChild.dgvThicknessData.Rows.Item(intRow + 2).Cells(Y + intTube).Value = "" Then

                                .Cells(X, Y + 1 + intTube).Interior.Color = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.ToOle(Color.White)

                        Else

                            If GetActiveChild.dgvThicknessData.Rows.Item(intRow + 2).Cells(Y + intTube).Style.BackColor <> Color.White Then

                                If .Cells(X, Y + 1 + intTube).Interior.Color <> System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.ToOle(GetActiveChild.dgvThicknessData.Rows.Item(intRow + 2).Cells(Y + intTube).Style.BackColor) Then

                                    .Cells(X, Y + 1 + intTube).Interior.Color = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.ToOle(GetActiveChild.dgvThicknessData.Rows.Item(intRow + 2).Cells(Y + intTube).Style.BackColor)

                                End If

                            End If

                        End If

                            ThicknessReadings(intRow + 2, intTube - 1) = GetActiveChild.dgvThicknessData.Rows.Item(intRow + 2).Cells(Y + intTube).Value

                        Next

There is the Open XML way, but that depends on the Excel version that you are using...

Oh, I wish...

There are plenty of references, like this one, for the SpreadsheetML Open XML specification:
