buffer size

***** Data for source column is too large for the specified buffer size while trying to import data in excel spreadsheet with a bulk text in it. *****
Some of you might have come accross this problem. There are two ways you can work around this problem.

1. The first and easy way is to Save the excel file as a .txt or .csv file and then import.This will work in most cases. If you have problem with this one you can play with registery at your own risk. But I have used in many times and it doesn't harm your system.

2. Play with registery:
Go to
- software
- Microsoft
- 4.0
- Engines
- Excel
- TypeGuessRows to the number of rows in your excel table. By default this value is 8.
