Hello,

Currently I have several excel templates which query Oracle and are used to update charts.  For the smaller files, it works well, but the larger excel files ~100MB's it is quite slow.  Does Oracle have something I could use to chart which would help with performance instead Excel?

Oracle's 'charting' is built in to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE)
http://www.oracle.com/us/solutions/business-analytics/business-intelligence/enterprise-edition/overview/index.html

The bad part is, just like most Oracle products, it isn't cheap.

Can you do most/all of the processing at the database layer and only do presentation in Excel?

Instead of bringing back 100M of data, can you do whatever summarization necessary at the database?

If you can provide more information about what the charts do and the raw data, we might be able to provide some SQL or maybe a function/procedure to help.

The Oracle database does not, but the Oracle corporation has many products including business intelligence.

But a way to help you would be to see if the size of those files can be reduced.
Maybe the queries (that produce the files) could do more of the needed number crunching?

You could also try APEX.  It comes with a wide variety of charting options.
