Hi I have some code that works for one row the issue is that it includes the ID value from the row selected as this needs to be unique it does not work.

Private Sub CopyRows(ByVal DGVGrid As DataGridView, ByVal SourceRowID As Integer, ByVal DestinationRowID As Integer)


        For j As Integer = 0 To DGVGrid.Rows(SourceRowID).Cells.Count - 1

            DGVGrid.Rows(DestinationRowID).Cells(j).Value = DGVGrid.Rows(SourceRowID).Cells(j).Value
        Next

    End Sub


   
    Private Sub Button7_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button7.Click
        Dim myRowIndex As Integer = Examination_Of_Lifting_EquipmentDataGridView.CurrentRow.Index
        For count As Integer = 0 To Examination_Of_Lifting_EquipmentDataGridView.Rows.Count - 1
            CopyRows(Examination_Of_Lifting_EquipmentDataGridView, myRowIndex, myRowIndex + 1)
        Next
    End Sub

this is just a suggestion.
Why not you go with javascript solution for the same.

here is scenariio:

you can put checkboxes / copy links for each row in grid.
and on any event call javascript function and add <td> with same table (rendered grid).

here is reference:

Also you can use ajax...

Hi Jtoutou

Yes it only copies one row, but the issue I have is the first column is the ID coloumn that has an autonumber set so I need a way of excluding this coloumn if possible.

Thanks

in the end I removed the ID coloumn from the datagrid view and the code works my question now is why is it so slow, the more data in the datagrid the slower the copy.
