Hello,

I am creating a SSIS package to generate .CSV files. But I came to know that we have constraint in Microsoft Dynamic CRM i.e. the .csv file size should not greater than 8MB.

I might have 5 GB data in .csv file.

Do you have best & optimal solution (like split file with 8MB after generate 5GB)?

Best Regards

Dear,

What if you zip 5GB .csv file and split it into smaller parts by using 7zip application. SSIS has a Execute Task component that helps us call a third party application such 7zip via command lines.

CRM Import Data Wizard takes "8MB" each .csv file. In case of .zip file, the maximum .zip file size will be "32MB".
But still in .zip file, each .csv file size shouldn't be greater than "8MB"
