I am using Access as the front end and SQL server as the back end database.

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptDtlBranchAll", acFormatXLS, ExportedFile

Hi zimmer9,

Depending on the version of excel it varies, though 65536 is the max number of rows that the later versions can manage.

If I am using Microsoft Excel 2003 and in the references, I have Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object Library, then how many rows do you think the max would be ?

You can export 65536 records per worksheet in a workbook.  However, in a workbook you can have up to 255 pages I believe, so with careful manipulation of your export, you can cram a lot of data into a workbook.

Is there a limit as to how many report pages can be exported perhaps due to page breaks ?

When I run the report from the Access Reports object, it totals 800 pages.

When the following line executes:

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptDtlBranchA", acFormatXLS, ExportedFile

I get a run time error 2306
There are too many rows to output based on the limitation specified by the output format or by Microsoft Access.

VB Editor (Ctl-G) click Help, Answer Wizard, type Specifications, and click on - Read about form and report specifications.  Does that answer you question?  I'm running A2K and according to the Specification, I can run a report with 65535 pages.

For info - Office 12 Excel (should be out in October) can handle 1 million rows (about time!)

Also, if you need to export more than 65535 rows, you can loop through teh data and put the first 65k on one worksheet, then move to next worksheet etc...

Idea..?
