Hi, convert this code to C# then try it.

Sub doExcel(Source as Object, E as EventArgs)
If gv.Rows.Count.ToString + 1 < 65536 Then
gv.AllowPaging="False"
gv.DataBind
Dim tw As New StringWriter()
Dim hw As New System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(tw)
Dim frm As HtmlForm = new HtmlForm()
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=" & "export.xls")
Response.Charset = ""
EnableViewState = False
Controls.Add(frm)
frm.Controls.Add(gv)
frm.RenderControl(hw)
Response.Write(tw.ToString())
Response.End()
gv.AllowPaging="True"
gv.Databind
Else
LblError.Text="Too many rows - Export to Excel not possible"
End If
End Sub

DataGridView1.RowHeadersVisible = false;  
DataGridView1.SelectAll();
Clipboard.SetDataObject(DataGridView1.GetClipboardContent(), true);
StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter("d:\\ReservationDetail.xls");
sw.Write(Clipboard.GetText());
sw.Flush();
sw.Close();
DataGridView1.ClearSelection();  
DataGridView1.RowHeadersVisible = true;

NeetD: I don't know C# as I code in vb.net but what I can see from your code is that this line

DataGridView1.SelectAll();

is selecting all the contents of the datagrid. I believe there is a click event of the grid where you can transfer the current column to Excel?
