ReportBuilder Schedule Limitation of 5 MB

In 2017 I asked about this limitation and I'm amazed that this is still in place!

I would love to hear from anyone who is using this because as much as I would like to I can't get my files that small.

This is what a 5 MB Excel file contains; 4 columns by 20 rows!

Sorry forgot to add....

...but yes - in a world of cohort analysis, instant segmentation on millions of rows and all the other impressive things Adobe has - it seems crazy that we are limited on the email schedule.

Thanks

Just jumping in here - I have seen this happen before with report builder.

We have a report that is 400kb and VERY detailed (1 evar that has 20 variables x 7 days x 3 devices x 10 marketing channels) - which then has maybe 10 metrics. This is normally 400kb(ish) however when we ran it on an other report suite it jumps to 8 meg. The number of rows/columns/design stay the same, so the file size should be very similar but it appears not.

Obviously at 8 meg we can't run schedule it so it has to be manually run by staff and emailed out.

Thanks

No not positive; It must be because I started with more content that I removed and the file is still retaining some of it.

Still, I don't see why the limit is so low. They should at least increase it to 25 MB to match GMAIL limits.

Are you absolutely 100% positively sure that's literally the only thing in your workbook? I have workbooks with multiple requests and more lines of data, and they're only 20KB. I'm pretty sure I can fit multiple requests with 50K rows and still not even hit 1MB.
