ASP.NET 3.5: Problem exporting grid contents to word from a child page: ErrorCode=-2147467259

I am using ASP.NET 3.5 with C# code.  I have gridview by name “gridinfo” in a child page populated by records from a database.  I am using a standard function to export the grid contents to word.
private void exportgridinfotoword()

    {
       
        Response.Clear();
  Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "inline;filename=abc.doc");
        Response.Charset = "";
        Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);
        Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.word";
        StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
        HtmlTextWriter htw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw);
       
        gridinfo.RenderControl(htw);
        Response.Write(sw.ToString());

        Response.Flush();
        Response.End();
    }
}

I am getting the following error
Message="Control 'ctl00_Main_gridinfo' of type 'GridView' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server." Source="System.Web"
What is the problem and likely solution

You are missing the Code to verify the Render Control

public override void
   VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)
{
   return;
}

The Complete Code Looks Like Somthing:

private void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   System.IO.StringWriter stringWriter =
      new System.IO.StringWriter();
   System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter htmlWriter =
      new System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(stringWriter);
   contentPanel.RenderControl(htmlWriter);
   string s = stringWriter.ToString();
   Response.Write(s);
   Response.End();
}

public override void
   VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)
{
   return;
}
