Hi satya, Below are the details: Sql server 2005 sp1 -32 bit( sql server and reporting services) Win 2003 standard sp1 Thanks. Najeed.

I had the similar issue with the excell while exporting. This is what I did. 1.) Navigate to the ReportDB –> ConfigurationInfo table –> EnableRemoteErrors to TRUE.
2.) If the main report has a subreport and exporting the same would give you problem because there is a limitation with SSRS while exporting subreports to Excell.
3.) Check the Excell Page limit(65535). If your report has more than 65535 rows then that could be the problem. To fix this issue please follow this link This is what I have done to fix this excell issue. Hope this helps…please let me know if you find any other answer.
Hi Deepak,
Actually, my table has around 20 million rows. So, it is not fitting in the excel sheet. I read the link , which u send me, thanks for that,and i set EnableRemoteErrors to TRUE but actually i m not deeply invovled with SSRS. So, can you kindly give the procedure to change the limit of rows from 65k to more in excel. I will really appreciate that. And do we have to do this in excel (or) in the report means this — [Create an outer table group using this group expression: =Int((RowNumber(Nothing)-1)/65000). Set Page break at end on the group.]
. Thanks. Najeed

You have to do that the Reporting services end. – Deepak V
Thanks Deepak, Got it. Najeed
