Default Exporting a Datagrid to a CSV file


I am a new boy to programming, anyway I was wondering if anybody has any code examples of how I can export data from a DataGrid into a .csv file.

I have a single database - MS Access, and it has two tables 1094, and 1115.

Does anybody have any idea of how I can achive this.

Many thanks

Here's some code to convert datagrid data to an Excel spreadsheet from an ASP.NET project I wrote:

Private Sub ConvertToExcel(ByRef r_dvReport As DataView)
    'first clean up the response.object

    Response.Charset = ""

    'set the response mime type for excel
    Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"

    'create a string writer
    Dim stringWrite As New System.IO.StringWriter

    'create an htmltextwriter which uses the stringwriter
    Dim htmlWrite As New System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite)

    'instantiate a datagrid - used for output
    Dim dgExcelOutput As New DataGrid

    'set the output datagrid datasource to the dataset associated
    ' with the data grid being converted
    dgExcelOutput.DataSource = r_dvReport

    'bind the datagrid

    'tell the datagrid to render itself to htmltextwriter

    'all that's left is to output the html

End Sub
