datagridview saving

P: n/a
Hi, I need some advice on how to proceed with saving gridview
contents. Ive got a 'datagridview control' on a form, so its window
application only not web. I fill this programatically with
'dataGridView1.Rows.Add(whatever array)' so its not bound to a
database. Once the data in I want to save the data in a format that I
can 1,reuse in the datagrid or 2, as an excel file. From what Ive
googled so far, this doesnt seem possible without using a dataset. So
am I correct in thinking that my best course of action is to--Send my
data to a database, create a dataset, bound this to datagridview and
then either stream into excel or possible save as xml file to reuse in
application. Or is there a way to avoid dataset. I dont have a problem
with 'dataset' its creating the database Im not clear on. Even after
googling. Thanks in advance.

Thankyou for your reply. That makes things clearer then. Create my
dataset and use in datagridview. Am I write that, to save contents of
datagridview, you have to have a dataset?.

thought, so Ill stick with it. Thanks for your time.
