open excel document in web form using vb.net

Having issues trying to open an excel document on a web form. The excel document is loading via a datatable. This works perfect on my dev pc running the vs2008 web application, but when I try to publish to the web, it gives me an error trying to save the document because it is in use by another program. I've tried using ClosedXML to do this along with the excel interop. Both are having issues because I'm trying to save the document to the server before opening the document. Is there any way to just open a excel document and fill it from a dataset or datatable with out having to save the document first before opening it in vb.net web form?

Tried above link. Looks like it will work, but when it runs this code "GridView1.RenderControl(hw)", it gives an exception of "Control 'gridview1' of type 'GridView' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server." I've tried to disable sorting and paging and that doesn't work. I've also tried pasting
Public Overridable Sub VerifyRenderingInServerForm ( _
      control As Control _
)
and it will not let me use this because it's not inside of the method. Where should I put that in code or is there another fix?

Put this within the same code behind class

Public Overrides Sub VerifyRenderingInServerForm ( control As Control )

End Sub
