I have a database that is running in windows 2008 R2, I have users  who are pulling reports and exporting them into an excel file. Each report contains 80,000 records/rows,  outputted to excel does not work as it exceeds the limit. Excel 2007/2010 can go up to over 1 million rows,  how do I get Sql server to out to a excel 2007 format?

Can you describe how the users are getting the records? It's not that they put the record in a .xls file instead of .xlsx right? The last one supports more rows.

It's a visual basic front end that connects to the sql server

Can you post details about the error that you're getting? Is it from the vb app?

For testing: can you get data from your sql server using Data->From Other Sources->From SQL Server in Excel 2007/2010 - I expect you don't get the limit problem there, right?

We were having the same issue and were able to resolve it with a product called Aspose.Cells.  It is a reporting services add-in.  With some simple customization, we have added Excel 2007 exports to our reports and our users are thrilled.

we found that the problem was with SSIS reporting and not an excel issue. SQL server 2008R2 has a reporting limited of 65K rows. SQL server 2012 fixes that with 1m rows
