  • Reasons for exporting to Excel:  1) allows the end user to do any Excel capabilities (sort, sum, etc.) he wants to do with the report data.  2) allows importing into another product for custom processing, since many applications allow importing Excel data. 

    Limit:  Yes that is a limit only on very old Excel worksheets and computers.
