iSeries Data Transfer to Excel 2007 limits rows

I am extracting data through Excel 2007 using iSeries Client Access transfer. However, even though I have Excel 2007 with 1 million rows, it stops at 65636 and says rows beyond are not valid. It will not let me start at a new row beyond that either. Is there a newer version of Client Access or a way around this?

Is there any way I can set relationships this way? Or limit the query. I don't want all million records, just some of them.

if you want to use the dtf. you need to filter the records on something to limit the result
In the *.dtf click "Data Options"  and in the "Where" section put in how you want to filter it you will need to know the name of the field. remember the if the field is a string you will need the single quote around your value
example: year=2008,NAME = 'John Smith'

Jeremy_Neppl:

You might try specifying a BIFF7 or 8 output format in the .DTF in order to go past the 65K row limitation. This may cause multiple worksheets to be created.

Other than that, it looks like the others have already given proper answers.
