I know this subject has been commented upon and discussed ad infinitum, but I have not run across anyone asking the question, "Is there a way to break up a large dataset into pieces for contiguous download to the client?"  By this, I mean, is there anything in the Export2Excel API that will facilitate such functionality?  This is imperative for datasets with more than 65k records (Excel's row limit).

tia,
Mark

Hello Mark,

RadGrid doesn't have a built-in mechanism for this functionality. What is more, we don't recommend you export such amounts of data, since this will take a considerable amount of time and will possibly result in out-of-memory exception if several users try to export this in the same time.
