The file will be a compressed (i.e. zipped) .csv file.

There are no file size limitations to the exported data file and large files will not be split. However, the number of records contained in the export file will affect the time to generate the file and how the records will be displayed if opened in Excel. If the user is using an older version of Excel (2003 or earlier), any records beyond 65,535 rows are dropped from the downloaded file. If the user is using a more recent version of Excel (2007 and beyond) to open the file, any records beyond 1,048,575 rows will be dropped from the downloaded file. In both instances, the user should consider using a text editor application to open the file to avoid dropping records.

The system provides warning messages about this.
