  3. Hi Ram,

    I am using SSRS 2008R2. My issue is I have a large report that I am trying to export to excel. But I keep getting the "Excel Rendering Extension: Number of rows exceeds the maximum possible rows per sheet in this format; Rows Requested: 68563, Max Rows: 65536 (rrRenderingError) ---> ".Is there something I need to do to get around this problem. The excel I am trying to export it to is excel 2007.


    1. Hi Reeba,
      Try exporting the data to a csv file format and see if you can export the data.
      Second option is try exporting a limited number of rows say 5000 to excel and see if that works. If not try reinstalling excel 2007 or excel 2010.
