I have these 3 grids where i would like to extract the data to excel following this process.

In column 0 you have the door letter.

In column 1 from each grid have order groups that link to the door, the P Carrier that link to the door and the Carrier that link to the door.

I would like to extract to excel based on the door letter.

How can i do that?

Name of grids:
MSHFlexgrid1
MSHFlexgrid2
MSHFlexgrid3

Grid look like:
3 grids
Excel extract result would be like:

Thanks again for your help

Add a fourth MSHFlexGrid (MSHFlexGrid4)  to your form and two Command Buttons.

Also add a reference to the Microsoft Excel Object Library

Command 1 will load MSHFlexGrid4 with the values you want

Command 2 will transfer them to Excel

Dim Doors As New Collection
Dim Door_Entry As String
Dim Order_Group() As String
Dim P_Carrier() As String
Dim Carrier() As String
