Private Sub Button4_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click

If ((DataGridView1.Columns.Count = 0) Or (DataGridView1.Rows.Count = 0)) Then

Exit Sub

End If

Dim dset As New DataSet


For i As Integer = 0 To DataGridView1.ColumnCount - 1



Dim dr1 As DataRow

For i As Integer = 0 To DataGridView1.RowCount - 1

dr1 = dset.Tables(0).NewRow

For j As Integer = 0 To DataGridView1.Columns.Count - 1

dr1(j) = DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells(j).Value




Dim excel As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application

Dim wbook As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook

Dim wsheet As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet

wbook = excel.Workbooks.Add()

wsheet = wbook.ActiveSheet()

Dim dt As System.Data.DataTable = dset.Tables(0)

Dim dc As System.Data.DataColumn

Dim dr As System.Data.DataRow

Dim colindex As Integer = 0

Dim rowindex As Integer = 0

For Each dc In dt.Columns

colindex = colindex + 1

excel.Cells(1, colindex) = dc.ColumnName


For Each dr In dt.Rows

rowindex = rowindex + 1

colindex = 0

For Each dc In dt.Columns

colindex = colindex + 1

excel.Cells(rowindex + 1, colindex) = dr(dc.ColumnName)




wsheet.Range("A1", "A5").Interior.ColorIndex()

Dim strfilename As String = "C:\Documents and Settings\bashkark\Desktop\MCAD.xls"

Dim blnfileopen As Boolean = True



excel.Visible = True

MsgBox("Report Created")

End Sub

tried it. It is like coloring the cells manually.. i want all the data to be colored that are colored in the datagridview.. if i said wsheet.range("A1","A5").interior.colorindex = 3, it colors the first 5 items (including the fieldname) red in the first column.. i dont want that to happen.. can some thing more be added to make the excel pick the color on its own (detect the color) and bring it to excel on the same values ?
