For i = 0 To Dstworkcounter2.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
       For j = 1 To 9
          DataGridView1.Item(j - 1, i).Value = Dstworkcounter2.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item(j).ToString
         Next
   Next
have a valid dataset, don't want the first value from it
get a run time error that says the index is either negative or out of range.
i is zero and j is one at that point.

I just want to fill the datagridview with data.  I remember something about turning off something in the datagridview properties.  
anyone got a idea why I just can't do a simple assign to a datagridview like this?

Hi javagair;

You should be able to do this and the second line of code will remove the column from being displayed.

DataGridView1.DataSource = Dstworkcounter2.Tables(0)
DataGridView1.Columns.Remove("Replace With Column Name As String")

Open in new window

or         DataGridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False ( after setting datasource assuming AutoGenerateColumns=True)

You got this error because your datagridview initialy have no row/columns, so assigning value to first (zero-based==0) row and first(==0) column throw out of range error

I added one simple line after reading ark comments.
 i = 0
                For Each row As DataRow In Dst3.Tables(0).Rows


                    DataGridView1.Rows.Add(1) 'THIS SOLVED PROBLEM
                    For j = 1 To 9
                        DataGridView1.Item(j - 1, i).Value = Dst3.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item(j).ToString
                    Next
                    i = i + 1
                Next row
