    Best option is to give the Excel Download functionality in the report instead of letting the users to use the standard download. You can use either 'SAP_CONVERT_TO_XLS_FORMAT' or GUI_DOWNLOAD to accomplish that. Standard download does consume more time if the data set is large.

      Hi Thanesh,

      I don't think it is the line count. I think it is the size of the table which counts. If you really want to download your file in foreground, try to download in sets. You know what I mean. If you think that 100000 is the limit, just download it in 1000000 sets into different files.

      But consider downloading this much of data in background into a shared location using OPEN DATASET. That is my recommendation.
