Row limit in Excel 2013

I have tried all the solutions in this thread and nothing works.  We are running Win 7 and Office 2013.  I try to download a file from our IBM AS400 with the add-in to transfer files.  My file has 65,637 records and it errors out saying that there are too many.  I've saved it as a .xlsx file.  I can't find anything about compatibility mode, so I assume that it is disabled.

I need to get this working asap as I have numerous files to download.  What do I need to do??

Thanks.

Which version of the add-in are you using? Excel 2003 was limited to 65,536 rows, so add-ins before V6R1 System i Access and V5R4 iSeries Access service pack SI31388 enforced that maximum number of rows. Later versions permit over a million rows.

As a workaround, you might consider export the file as txt file format. Excel can read those and exceed the artificial limit of 65,536 rows by old versions of the AS400 Excel add-in.
