When Export to Excel (csv) in OBIEE 12c, rows are limited to 65000 (65K)

After upgrading to OBIEE 12c, you may have noticed that your downloads to Excel CSV files are now getting cut off at 65000 rows.  If you are experiencing this issue, this post may help.

In OBIEE 11g, there was a parameter (instanceconfig.xml parameter) called “DefaultRowsDisplayedInDownload” that controlled the number of rows downloadable to a CSV file.   So, if you had that set to a number higher than 65K, then you would have been able to download more than 65K rows in the past.

However, the parameter that now controls the number of rows downloadable to CSV in OBIEE 12c is “DefaultRowsDisplayedInDownloadCSV“.  You will need to set this parameter in the instanceconfig.xml file based on your needs.

This parameter DefaultRowsDisplayedInDownloadCSV is found within the <Table> section which may look something like this:

< DefaultRowsDisplayedInDelivery>1000000</DefaultRowsDisplayedInDelivery>
< DefaultRowsDisplayedInDownload>1000000</DefaultRowsDisplayedInDownload>
< MaxCells>10000000</MaxCells>
< MaxVisiblePages>50</MaxVisiblePages>
< MaxVisibleRows>1000000</MaxVisibleRows>
< MaxVisibleSections>100000</MaxVisibleSections>
< DefaultRowsDisplayed>100</DefaultRowsDisplayed>
< /Table>

As always, back up your files before making changes.  Then, change the parameter as needed, and restart OBIEE services.
