Limitations with Exporting to Excel (Report Builder 1.0)

When exporting report data to Microsoft Excel, you should be aware of the following limitations:

  • The maximum number of rows in Excel is 65,536. This is checked by the Excel export option, and an error is displayed in Excel if the limit is exceeded.

  • The maximum number of columns in Excel is 256. This is checked by the Excel export option, and an error is displayed in Excel if the limit is exceeded.

  • The maximum column width in Excel is 255 characters or 1,726.5 points. This is not checked by the Excel export option.

  • The maximum number of characters in a cell is 32,767. This is not checked by the Excel export option.

  • There is a limit to the number of worksheets that Excel can have per workbook. Each page of the rendered report becomes a worksheet; an error is displayed in Excel if the limit is exceeded.

  • Excel supports only the following border line widths: 0.5 pt., 1.0 pt., and 1.5 pt.

When saving your report data to Excel, Report Builder formulas are not converted to Excel formulas. Instead, the value is placed directly in the cell.
