SE16 Usage causes application servers to crash


We currently allow all users to access SE16 to view tables that we do not currently have reports for. With this we have seen many users who are not aware of how many records are in a given table and try to download the entire table to Excel. Even though the user has selected to only display 100 records on the screen the download process still try to download all data that matches the criteria in the selection fields. This then may try to download 10+ million records causing the application servers to run out of memory and paging space based on the download. We have contemplated trying to make a custom SE16 that hard codes how to only limit the # of records that can be downloaded at at time. Does anybody know of another way to do this besides creating a custom report for every user need? Thanks.
