I am using a datagridview in my application and I have filled it with dataset which returns two columns ID and Name, but in gridview I'm displaying the name column alone hiding the ID column. Is it possible to export the rows alone from datagridview to excel. Eg If the follow. names appear as each row,

My excel should be in a format that each row must display as a column


Code Which I have tried for export

SaveFileDialog saveFileDialog1 = new SaveFileDialog();
                saveFileDialog1.Filter = "Excel files |*.xls|All files (*.*)|*.*";
                saveFileDialog1.FilterIndex = 2;
                saveFileDialog1.RestoreDirectory = true;
                saveFileDialog1.CreatePrompt = true;
                saveFileDialog1.Title = "Export Excel File To";
                if (saveFileDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)

                    worksheet = workbook.Sheets["Sheet1"];
                    worksheet = workbook.ActiveSheet;
                    worksheet.Name = "Exported from Data Template";
                    for (int i = 0; i < dgDtParameters.Rows.Count - 1; i++)
                        for (int j = 0; j < dgDtParameters.Columns.Count; j++)
                            worksheet.Cells[i + 2, j + 1] = dgDtParameters.Rows[i].Cells[j].Value.ToString();
                    fileName = saveFileDialog1.FileName;
                    workbook.SaveAs(fileName, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlSaveAsAccessMode.xlExclusive, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);
                    MessageBox.Show("Data template exported successfully","Data Template Export);

            catch (Exception e)
                workbook = null;
                app = null;

does your data come from an sqlserver 2005 or newer?

S it comes from SQL server 2008 express. I'm fillin the datagridview using dataset which in turn is returned through a stored procedure

I have got the concept of displaying the rows in horizontal manner in excel, but I dont know how to display only the column 2, but I need column 1 also in datagridview for validation purpose
