There are examples and tutorial on Internet. You may find one on the MSDN web site:

The link is about importing dataset into Excel using VB.Net.

The method shown in the article anarki_jimbel links to will work, but it's painfully slow. If your output has more than a few thousand cells, the overhead of doing each cell individually will kill you. You're much better off loading an array with the values from the DataTable, then loading the entire array into Excel using a command like
Dim oRange As Excel.Range = excelWorkSheet.Range("A1")
oRange.Value = oData

Open in new window

where excelWorkSheet is an individual sheet in a receiving Excel workbook (file) and oData is a two-dimensional array of values, which you would completely load before executing these lines.
