da.Fill will try to fill all the data in the DataSet and when data is large, this will take more resources and might slow down the system and even might cause issues like yours....

Alternatively try using DataReader....

It would not be an issue, you can write to csv file even without knowing how many columns are there and without knowing the col names. sample code is below:
string connString = "conn string here";

            using (OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connString))
            {
                conn.Open();

                string sqlQuery = "SELECT query here.....";
                OleDbCommand command = new OleDbCommand(sqlQuery, conn);

                OleDbDataReader reader = command.ExecuteReader();

                TextWriter textWriter = new StreamWriter("RCCM_Report.csv");
                // write column headers if you want

                while (reader.Read())
                {
                    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();

                    for (int f = 0; f < reader.FieldCount; f++)
                    {
                        string fieldValue = reader[f].ToString();
                        if(fieldValue.Contains(',')) // if value contains comma, enclose the value within quotes
                        {
                            fieldValue = "\"" + fieldValue + "\"";
                        }
                        sb.Append(fieldValue);
                        sb.Append(",");
                    }

                    textWriter.WriteLine(sb.ToString());                    
                }

                reader.Close();
            }

Plus to make it more user responsive....you can put this code in a thread and show a progressbar/cancel and in the loop handle the cancel and progress update....

Below is the code that adds the col names as header line to csv file:
... // code not shown here
OleDbDataReader reader = command.ExecuteReader();

                TextWriter textWriter = new StreamWriter("RCCM_Report.csv");
                
                string headerLine = string.Empty;
                for (int h = 0; h < reader.FieldCount; h++)
                {
                    headerLine += reader.GetName(h) + ",";
                }

                textWriter.WriteLine(headerLine);

                while (reader.Read())
                {
                    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();

... // code not shown here
