Dear Coders,

With the help of Google and Our Coders I Managed to export the data in datagridview to Excel with the Column Headings. But now the thing is I would like to Highlight a specific cell with different colors in the exported data of Excel. Please Help. the code of the export data event is below.

Collapse | Copy Code
Dim ExcelApp As Object, ExcelBook As Object
Dim ExcelSheet As Object
Dim i As Integer
Dim j As Integer
'create object of excel
ExcelApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
ExcelBook = ExcelApp.WorkBooks.Add
ExcelSheet = ExcelBook.WorkSheets(1)
With ExcelSheet
    For i = 1 To Me.DataGridView1.ColumnCount
        .Cells(1, i) = DataGridView1.Columns(i - 1).HeaderText
    For i = 1 To Me.DataGridView1.RowCount
        For j = 0 To DataGridView1.Columns.Count - 1
            .cells(i + 1, j + 1) = DataGridView1.Rows(i - 1).Cells(j).Value
End With
ExcelApp.Visible = True
ExcelSheet = Nothing

Hi, I guess you want to change the color of cell in Excel. So following code might help you.

objxlWS.Range(Cell(startRow, startCol), Cell(EndRow, End Column)).Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = fillColor
