What is the row limit (as a data source) for CSV files.

Can CR handle writing reports off of very large CSV files?

I referring to say 30 million, or 300 million rows?

It would be smarter to import it into a SQL table and attach to that, but I still have to ask.

Thanks for any assistance.

    Hi Bruce,

    That's a lot of rows for any database!

    Considering this is flat file, I believe the process would be very slow or it may even come to a point where CR crashes.

    I agree. I just had to ask the question. I've tried it on a much smaller (but still large) file and it's pretty slow.

    Justifications etc.

    I appreciate the help folks.
