Power BI Report Server SSRS Report Export to Excel Error



I have hosted the SSRS Report in Power BI Report Server that report output has nearly 1900 pages.

For exporting in to excel, I have created Subscription and delivery as “Windows File Share” in Power BI Reporting portal.

When the subscription schedule starts immediately  it goes to “Pending” status and getting the below error message in the Report Server log file.

Unhandled error in the Web API. Exception: System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: Error while copying content to a stream. ---> System.IO.IOException ---> System.Net.HttpListenerException: The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request


Please advise, how to resolve this export issue and is there any config setting to update to get the large number of records export to file?

Hi @elitekrishnan !

It seems like you are running into Memory / Excel export limitation with your SSRS report. See the MS docs below;


Excel Limitations 

You can try exporting the report directly by browsing through the report & see if it works, make sure your system has enough available RAM to hold 1900 pages.
