Why is export to excel limited to 256 Columns? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am using Microsoft reportviewer control in VS 2005 to display reports in an ASP.Net application.

    I get the following error message when trying to export a report to excel.

    "Excel Rendering Extension : Number of columns in the Excel sheet exceeded the limit of 256 columns."

    Can I somehow manipulate the reportviewer to allow more than 256 columns on exporting?

    Any workaround solution will be highly appreciated.
