I have this problem generating a string based on all the values from a DataGridView column.

Ex. If in my grid, i have:

I would like to generate a string that will be puted into my txEquipmentCompatibilityString.Text as below:


The problem i have is that i only get ('010') with the below code:

'Build String
        Dim s As String

        For n = 0 To dgvLoadCommodities.RowCount - 1

            If String.IsNullOrEmpty(dgvLoadCommodities.Rows(n).Cells(0).Value) Then
                s = "'" + dgvLoadCommodities.Rows(n).Cells(0).Value.ToString.Replace("'", "''") + "'"
            End If

        txEquipmentCompatibilityString.Text = "" & "(" + " '" + dgvLoadCommodities.Rows(0).Cells(0).Value.ToString.Replace("'", "''") + "')"

How can i fix that.

Thanks again for your help.
