PPM Excel Report Performance Issue

we have an excel template embedded with SQL statement in 10 sheets which will download data from PPM DB

the number of output result of these SQL query are supposed to be from 10 to 50, 000. Maximun is around 50, 000, average is 200

We are facing a critical performance issue when running this report.  

Popup error message saying: 

Error running report: Java heap space

could it possbily be solved by increasing heap size?

You have to use LARGE DATA MODE.

This is described in Excel Cookbook and may solve your java heap issue.

Yes, I agree with Alex. Large Data Mode will slove the issue and its clearly mentioned in PDF that if you are expecting more than 10000 records, you should use Large Data Mode.

NOTE: Large Data Mode restricts formatting in your excel template.
