Move to Next Cell in WinForm Grid and Select Text

HI guys,

I’m on a Windows Form. I’'m able to select the first cell. Ive tried to do a move Right by using Send HotKey. However, i can’t select the value in the next cell to see if it is in the right cell. When i try to use hotkeys I get an error.

How do i start in one cell, move over 8 times, copy the value in that cell, place it in a variable, copy the value in the next cell? Basically I"m moving data from one column to the next.

There are N number of columns. So then I’d use the down arrow to get the next row and copy it and paste it as well. I don’t know how best to traverse a grid on Windows Forms.
