Trying to export all of my members, roughly 37,000 contacts. I am unable to export all at once, how do I break up the contacts so that I can eventually export all of them?

No problem. Just create separate reports to filter say last name is less than "L", and last name greater than or equal to "L".

i.e. See if it will export in two halves.

Mark, if i have 302 K rows data, what is the limit for each report if I do break the data?

I do not know the limits, but it is a function of the amount of data and not the number of rows. So it depends how many columns you have in your data and how much data is in each column.  

I assume that 300,000 rows is failing, otherwise you would not have posted the question.  So cut that in half to 150,000 and see if that works.  If that fails then cut down in half again to 75,000 rows.

Thanks. There are not lot of columns.  So Managed to break it into  half.  So for the benefit of others, I could export 150 K records.
