Goal

Need to be able to extract data from Fusion OTBI reports ouput in both .CSV and Excel formats.

A BI report runs is run returning many rows of data. NEXT button can be selected to scroll through the pages. Try to use Export to Excel with the report open, it works for a while and then goes to an Apache Bridge error.

When the report is opened in the UI and then exported to data in Excel, The UI tries to hold all the data while it is working on the export operation. This is too much data and the WebLogic Server that runs this BI instance is runs out of memory.
