CRM 2011 Online ModifyMaxExportTool

Post Author: Joe D365 |

We often see a request to increase the amount of records that can be exported from CRM at one time. The default value is set to 10,000, so the maximum records you can export to Excel at one time is 10,000. Microsoft has now created a tool that can access this field in a CRM Online organization database and allow you to increase this value. Say Hello' to CRM 2011 Online ModifyMaxExportTool.

This tool can also be used with OnPremise version of CRM and there is a read me file included in the tool that contains the steps.

If you increase the value and you receive a time-out error while exporting the records configure the steps below.

  • Increase the Maximum Connections of Internet Explorer:
  1. Outlook inherently uses Internet Explorer to help render web content. Although the 2011 version of the client relies heavily on mapi integration to display data, increasing the maximum number of connections for Internet Explorer can help mitigate performance issues. The KB article listed below contains a "Fix It" to increase the maximum number of connections for Internet Explorer:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282402
  • Change timeout on connection:
  • Locate the TcpTimedWaitDelay key in the registry:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTcpipParameters (select Parameters)
  • Check if the TcpTimedWaitDelay registry exists or not. If yes set the Decimal value to 300. If no follow the below steps:
  • On the Edit menu, point to New, click DWORD Value and then add the following registry value:
  • Value Name: TcpTimedWaitDelay
  • Value: 300

  1. Hi Alex,

    Any ideea if there will be an update to be able to connect to the Office 365 organizations, rather than CTP ones where we use WLID?
    currently, I have tested and it looks like it's not possible.


    1. Hi Tudor - Yep. Lets us try to get this. and if one is not ready we'll try ot get the code and adjust so it works with ostp.

  2. How does this work for 2013 online?
    And is using Office365 accounts possible now instead of WLID?
