DataGridView not recognizing Dataset?

I have a function that returns a single row from a SQL Server Database. I'm getting the following error message: "Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index" on the line marked "Error occurs here". That tells me that even though the dataset contains a valid record, for some reason it's not being assigned to the DataGridView. What's up with that? See attached image.

    Private Function GetDetailRecords(ByVal iEquipmentID As Integer)
            clsDE = New CalTableClasses.CalibrationClasses.DETAILS_Equipment

            BL.GetDetailsEquipmentRecord(iEquipmentID, clsDE, EH)

            If EH.Success Then
                dgvComponents.DataSource = Nothing

                If EH.ErrorMessage = "" Then
                    If EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Rows.Count > 0 Then
                        dgvComponents.DataSource = EH.DataSet.Tables(0)
                        dgvComponents.Columns(18).Visible = False     'Error occurs here
                        dgvComponents.Columns(19).Visible = False
                        dgvComponents.Columns(20).Visible = False
                        dgvComponents.Columns(21).Visible = False
                        dgvComponents.Columns(22).Visible = False
                        dgvComponents.Columns(23).Visible = False
                        dgvComponents.Columns(24).Visible = False
                        dgvComponents.Columns(25).Visible = False

                        For Each row As DataRow In EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Rows
                            If Not IsDBNull(row(1)) Then
                                iSeqNO = row(1)
                            End If
                    End If
                End If
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.ErrorMessage = "GetDetailRecords() - " & ex.Message & "...Contact Engineering!" & "~E"
        End Try

        Return EH
    End Function

The image and code do not provide enough information. How do you have your datagridview configured? Are you manually defining the columns or are you auto-generating them? If auto-generating them, does your query return 19+ columns of data? If manually defining them, have you added 19+ columns to it? (The plus sign is because, according to your code, you have 26 columns of data to display.)

You just sparked a thought. The grid is empty (no columns/rows). I forgot to set the "AutoGenerateColumns" property. I inserted that statement and it worked as it should!
