I would approach this slightly differently.
To generate the column names, I would use the original DataSet. Instead of using a for loop I would a foreach loop they ahve less over head then the for loops
let's assume that your dataset is called ds.
StringBuilder sb = new Stringbuilder();
int numColumns = Tables.Columns.Count-1 int columnCounter= numColumns;
foreach(DataColumn dc in ds.Tables.Columns)
AppendDelimiter(sb, ref columnCounter);
foreach(GridViewRow gvr in Datagidveiw1.Rows)
foreach(TableCell c in grv.Cells)
private void AppendDelimiter(StringBuilder sb, ref int columnCounter)
if (columnCounter > 0)
do the rest of the code here to write content to file.
I have tested this and it worked just fine.
If you have any more issues then I would like to see the code that you use to construct your gridview and or a screenshot of the populated gridview.
Another alternative is to persit your changes in the gridview to the DataSet and then iterate through the DataSet.Table.Rows to create the csv.
