Excel export limit: does it not warns if you are downloading more than 150k rows?

Hello everyone,

I'd like to have a confirmation about this: when i try to export in Excel something and it has more than 150K rows (I am a pro user), shouldn't it warn me that I'm downloading only a fraction of the total?
Or am I missing something?
If the final user is not warned about that, he may be analyzing some incorrect data.

Hi @MaxItaly,

Based on the document, the maximum number of rows that can be exported to .xlsx is 150,000.

 

If your download more than 150k rows you may get a limit warning.

 

For more limitations of Export data, you could refer to this official document.

 

In addition, you could refer to this similar thread.

Hi, thanks for the info, but what I really wanted to have a confirmation why it does not warn me if I'm trying to download more than 150K rows.

It really should have to warn me.

I have already read those links, I'll just guess I can do nothing about it.

Thanks
