Has anyone heard of Oracle limiting the number of rows oracle reports can import into an excel spreadsheet? I  was reading on something online about it limiting to 65k rows and then there's a patch you can apply that will increase it to 1 million rows. How do I check if my database has these patches?

Excel had a hard limit of 65K rows.

This has been lifted in Excel 2007 and above.

From:

In Microsoft Excel 97 for Windows, Microsoft Excel 2000, Microsoft Excel 2002, and Microsoft Office Excel 2003, text files that contain more than 65,536 rows cannot be opened in their entirety. You cannot open these files because these versions of Microsoft Excel are limited to 65,536 rows.
