We have had similar situations, but the biggest adjustment we had to make was to adjust the limitation for the kilobytes allowed to be exported to the clipboard. To fix this go to the main browser display and click on customize, then click on preferences. On the Miscellaneous tab there is a field where you can change the number. I have mine set to the first 50,000K characters and seem to do okay with most copies. The other option is to copy to a text file rather than to the clipboard. This can be used for bigger files, takes longer, but will work in some cases where the clipboard won't.

I just got off the phone with MAPICS support. We have an end-user who has set up a view and subset over MO Operations (we're using Browser and EPDM at Rel 4 - MO Operations is a look-only card). If he tries to copy this view and subset combination to clipboard to load into Excel, his PC locks up with an "out of memory" error. Mine does, too. I have 256 mb memory. At MAPICS support, their PC didn't lock up, but it took over 15 minutes to copy to the clipboard. They have 512 mb memory. The problem with this view is that it includes two "calculated" fields, both of which are essential to the task my end-user is trying to accomplish. Views without calculated fields don't cause a problem. Just how much memory DOES the Browser need to work? I know the Rel 6 documentation says 128 mb (we've ordered and are in the process of installing to get all Browser-using PC's up to 128), but what do you REALLY need? Anyone else, especially on Rel 6, having out-of-memory problems with Browser? How about with some of the new Browser functions - MM, OBPM, CSM, etc.? Any words of wisdom?
