As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.
New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

A lot of times it's hard to change the hearts and minds of end users that are used to doing things a certain way. I've seen this type of thing a lot and I agree there is a better way but sometimes its a difficult road to hoe.

Look for 'Creating Reports With WebFOCUS Language > Choosing a Display Format > Using Excel Display Formats: EXL07, EXL2K, EXL97, EXCEL > Overcoming the Excel 2007 and 2010 Row Limit Using Overflow Worksheets' in the documentation.
The maximum number of rows supported by Excel 2007 and 2010 on a Worksheet is 1,048,576 (1MB). When you create an EXL07 output file from a WebFOCUS report, the number of rows generated can be greater than this maximum.
To avoid creating an incomplete output file, you can have extra rows flow onto a new Worksheet, called an overflow Worksheet. The name of each overflow Worksheet will be the name of the original Worksheet appended with an increment number.
In addition, when the overflow Worksheet feature is enabled, you can set a target value for the maximum number of rows to be included on a Worksheet. By default, the row limit will be set to the default value for the LINES parameter (57).
Note: By default, when generating EXL07 output, the WebFOCUS page heading and page footing commands generate only Worksheet headings and Worksheet footings.

That must create a rather large printed document for one person to read (or even view on a sceen). But one of the beauties of WebFocus is that if this is what you want you can have it. In this case it takes a little extra effort.
