in thread Need to generate excel having more than 70,000 records

The data is being produced from a 'table' so must be put into some form that is acceptable to Excel. If this format can not be generated such that Excel understands it as required (and the old module can generate it like that) then agreed you can not use cvs. However as I don't know what format is required I felt it was a reasonable suggestion. From my experience of extracting data from DBs for import into Excel spreadsheets (thankfully limited!) cvs has worked reasonably well. This was only company internal though, so if you have external clients it could be more of a problem. But the new modules seem as though they will address the problem, so all's well.

    It was a reasonable suggestion the first time you made it. But once you were told that formatting is a requirement, it was unreasonable to come back with the same suggestion when it clearly cannot meet the requirement.
      Thanks. Obviously I misunderstood the scope of 'some formatting requirement'. I'll leave this sort of stuff to others in future, in case I confuse the issue.
