report viewer control - problem with exporting local report to excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I have a problem with exporting large local report to excel file using ms report viewer control. The export operation takes long time and the web browser says "request timeout exceeded".
    I cannot change request timeout setting in my production environment (its it working correctly in my development machine) so I need to find a way of speeding up the exporting operation.
    My questions are:

    1. How can I speed up xls file generation?
    2. Has the SQL server performance anything to do with this issue and if yes then how can I make it work faster?
    3. Can I call exporting function somehow out of the vb code in asynchronous mode so the web server don't have to wait for response?
    4. Is there any other way of solving this problem (except splitting big report into smaller ones)?

    Thanks in advance,
