Default Export DataList to Excel

Can someone please help. I was able to export my Gridview to Excel, but had to use a datalist instead due to some unique bindings I had to place on the contents.

I tried simply changing "GridView" to "DataList" and it didn't work.

Please help.

Kind Regards,
Rob

Dim MyGridView As New GridView()
        'MyGridView = GridView1
        MyGridView.DataSource = KnightsDataSource
        MyGridView.DataBind()
        Dim attachment As String = "attachment; filename=Members.xls"
        Response.ClearContent()
        Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", attachment)
        Response.ContentType = "application/ms-excel"
        Dim sw As IO.StringWriter = New IO.StringWriter()
        Dim htw As HtmlTextWriter = New HtmlTextWriter(sw)
        MyGridView.RenderControl(htw)
        Response.Write(sw.ToString())
        Response.End()
