Exporting data to Excel from rdl file (SSRS report) RRS feed

  • Question

  • A report contains 103762 rows and when I am trying to export the data to Excel it is throwing an error "Excel rendering extension: the number of rows exceeds the maximum rows per sheet in this format. Requested rows: 103762, maximum number of rows: 65536". No error occurs when exporting data from reports when the report contains rows less than 65536.

    Please suggest.

  • Older versions of Excel (.xls extension) were limited to 64k rows and 256 columns. Newer versions allow for something over a million. Any chance you're using an older version?

    Also, if you're using an integer variable to point to rows, integers end at 65K so switch to double.
