Hi All,
I've a 780 mb csv file which was generated via SSis  stored locally on my system
when i try opening it ,  it tries opening for a while and I get error "file cannot be loaded completely"
it finally opens but cant find all the 1.3 million rows . Am I doing something wrong?
Business wants to see in readable format.

There is a limitation on number of rows that an Excel file can handle or you have reached the memory limit of your system. Suggestion is to change the SSIS to save in several files with a limit of 500.000 per file.

I'm using flat file connection manager, Is there an option there to specify that.

Textpad is fine opening it, but Business analysts cant read them as we do. So they need it in a readable format like spreadsheet for their calculations

btw it is an unrealistic expectation to serve up 1.3 million rows to users in an editable format.
Other options are...
load it into a SQL table, then you can use Excel Power Query.  Also write views or stored procedures to limit the data to only what they really need, including aggregations.

Perform some requirements ellicitation to flush out what they really need to do with this data.

Provide them with a super text editing tool such as Ultra Edit.
