Getting error if the .xlsb file is more than 50mb file size

8 - Asteroid

Hi All,


I just need to confirm if there's an limit in file size in a .xlsb file because upon checking of the xlsb files I'm not getting any error if the files have an 25mb or less and for 50mb or greater 50mb there's an error. see the attached image.




The input data (4) is less than 25mb xlsb file size

The input data (3) is greater than 50mb xlsb file size


Thank you!

Hey @arjundelara,

I would submit a case to Alteryx Support about the bug here: Support - Alteryx Community. I would be interesting to see what the error log says, people have been using .xlsb files in Alteryx for a while so I would be surprised if the size of the file was the issue.

Hi @IraWatt ,


Will do and will get back to you after they give the logs needed to fix this issue.


Thank you so much!
