Can anybody explain export contacts bulk activity process?

Hi, Can anybody explain the export contacts bulk activity process?
What is the maximum number of contacts which can be exported using this export activity process in one request?
Is there any limit on the size of csv and/or txt file generated? If yes then what is the maximum size limit and what happens when size is more then the permitted or allowed size?



Hi Akhilesh,

The limitations for exporting are probably going to appear in whatever program you are using to view them (unless it's Excel 2007). I just checked exporting 750000 contacts with full details and while it took upwards of 20 minutes to run, it went through fine as a csv file. Hope that helps!
