As I understand, here you me humble example to do that. But remember that we have an array which consists of five element "Arr(5)" with some values, then add these values in a specific DGV column, so please do the appropriate modification for your exact need.

Here is the code:

Public Class Form1

Private Sub BtnFillDGVFromArray_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles BtnFillDGVFromArray.Click

    Dim Arr(5) As String

    ' This to give the array initial values to aviod the null reference
    For i = 0 To 4
        Arr(i) = Nothing

    ' Add some strings to the array
    For i = 0 To 4
        Arr(i) = "ArrayVar(" & i & ")"

    DGV.Columns.Add("Col1", "Col1")
    For i = 0 To UBound(Arr) - 1

End Sub

End Class
