VB.NET: Word table from Datagridview, windows forms

I've successly used the attached code for 3 datagridviews in another window form.  For whatever reason, it does not want to work so well on the form I am currently working on.

The output in the word table only shows the last row of the datagridview.  Don't know where the preceding rows go. I think it may have something to do with emply or null datagridview cells.  I checked for null with an if statement and the output was 'Null'.

I had also checked the values with a messagebox.  The values were there.

   
wdDoc.Bookmarks.Item("\endofdoc").Range.InsertParagraphAfter()            
            Dim dgTable As Word.Table  'Grid Headers
            Dim dgvTableColumns = DataGridView1.ColumnCount
            Dim dgvTableRows = DataGridView1.RowCount
            If dgvTableRows >= 1 Then
                dgTable = wdDoc.Tables.Add(wdDoc.Bookmarks.Item("\endofdoc").Range, 1, dgvTableColumns)
                With dgTable
                    .Columns(1).Width = 125
                    .Columns(2).Width = 75
                    .Columns(3).Width = 125
                    .Columns(4).Width = 80
                    .Columns(5).Width = 100
                    .Columns(6).Width = 100
                End With
                For ch As Integer = 1 To dgvTableColumns
                    dgTable.Cell(1, ch).Range.Font.Bold = True
                    dgTable.Cell(1, ch).Range.Text = DataGridView1.Columns(ch - 1).HeaderText.ToString
                Next

                wdDoc.Bookmarks.Item("\endofdoc").Range.InsertParagraphAfter()

                dgTable = wdDoc.Tables.Add(wdDoc.Bookmarks.Item("\endofdoc").Range, 1, dgvTableColumns) 'Grid cells
                For r = 1 To dgvTableRows                    
                  For c = 1 To dgvTableColumns
                        With dgTable
                            .Columns(1).Width = 125
                            .Columns(2).Width = 75
                            .Columns(3).Width = 125
                            .Columns(4).Width = 80
                            .Columns(5).Width = 100
                            .Columns(6).Width = 100
                        End With
                        If (DataGridView1(c - 1, r - 1).Value.Equals(System.DBNull.Value)) Then
                            dgTable.Cell(r, c).Range.Text = "Null"
                        Else
                            dgTable.Cell(r, c).Range.Text = DataGridView1(c - 1, r - 1).Value.ToString
                        End If  
                  Next
                Next

Could it be because you have 1 as number of rows when adding table? Try

dgTable = wdDoc.Tables.Add(wdDoc.Bookmarks.Item("\endofdoc").Range, dgvTableRows, dgvTableColumns)

Have you stepped through the code to see what its doing?

By the way, following lines do not need to be inside the loop

With dgTable
                            .Columns(1).Width = 125
                            .Columns(2).Width = 75
                            .Columns(3).Width = 125
                            .Columns(4).Width = 80
                            .Columns(5).Width = 100
                            .Columns(6).Width = 100
                        End With

Yes, I know that.  But I've been fussing with the code so much, I left them in by mistake.  You can see that I did that with the headers.  

I put a messagebox in and the right values came up.  I stepped through the code, and I can see the values.  But all I end up with is the last datagrid row.

So the last row of grid is inserted into the last row of table? Or last row of grid is in the first row of table?

The last row of the grid is the only row inserted into the table.

Well, color me embarressed.  Somehow I got it into my head that I meant the first column.  So 1 to how many columns there were.  

As my supervisor always says, it's good to have a second set of eyes.  

Thanks CodeCruiser.
