    I want to say one thing:

    BW is a decision tool. Can you tell me what do you need to do with 400 thousand lines. Ok that is not my business, but be carefully. It does not make sense to produce a report with 400 thousand line. Anyway, you can use web reporting.

    I hope this can help you.

      You should use the InfoSpoke concept (version 3.x) to download the values to a file. I would agree - 400000 records is NOT a report. Even if you managed to get it to run on a web report, you still could not download it to a file.
