I have a report that can create 200k-300k of rows.  When I try to export this to Excel, SSRS gives me an error message that the limit for export to Excel is 65536.  As SSRS (2008) is a newer Microsoft product, I am quite surprised that this limit is not set at the 1.2 million to accommodate the newer versions of Excel.

What is the recommended way to circumvent this limitation on export?
