2432283 - Rows limits for csv and excel Report Exports

Symptom

Are there limits to the rows, columns, or the amount of data when exporting Reports from SuccessFactors?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Reporting

Resolution

  • There is no row limit for CSV.
  • The XLS has row limit of 65536 and
  • XLSX has row limit of 1,048,576

These limitations are because of the way Microsoft Excel works and not from SuccessFactors : Excel specifications and limits

For more details on Ad Hoc reports: Adhoc Report Builder (Administration Guide)

Workaround : Adding filter will reduce the output and ensure that the amount of results is within the limitations.

Steps to add filters:

  1. Go to Analytics > Reporting > Adhoc Reporting > Edit
  2. Select Filter > add filter criteria ( eg. Filter by Division, Department, Location etc. )
  3. Save
  4. Run the report
