Hi again.

I'm trying to export to Excel all columns from my DataGridView1.

I'm using below code:
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Reflection
Imports ClosedXML.Excel

Open in new window

Private Sub Button4_Click_1(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnExportToExcel.Click
        'Creating DataTable
        Dim dt As New DataTable()

        'Adding the Columns
        For Each column As DataGridViewColumn In DataGridView1.Columns
            dt.Columns.Add(column.HeaderText, column.ValueType)

        'Adding the Rows
        For Each row As DataGridViewRow In DataGridView1.Rows
            For Each cell As DataGridViewCell In row.Cells
                dt.Rows(dt.Rows.Count - 1)(cell.ColumnIndex) = cell.Value.ToString()

        'Exporting to Excel
        Dim folderPath As String = "C:\"
        If Not Directory.Exists(folderPath) Then
        End If
        Using wb As New XLWorkbook()
            wb.Worksheets.Add(dt, "Customers")
            wb.SaveAs(folderPath & Convert.ToString("DataGridViewExport.xlsx"))
        End Using
    End Sub

Open in new window

The problem i have is that i'm getting below error, and i don't understand why:

What can i do to fix this problem?
