File Size

Posted by jeggent on February 19, 2016

This is just a public service announcement to save network traffic and file storage space.

When you run a query to Excel from PeopleSoft it will initially be in an Excel 2010 .xls file format.  The query results that I just download had 39,181 rows and 10 columns of data.  As an xls file it had a file size of 6,733 KB.  Without making any other changes I saved the file as an Excel 2013 .xlsx file and it reduced the file size to 1,756 KB.  That is almost 75% smaller.

Thank you for your attention.  You may now return to your memes and cat videos.
