Datablist prevents you from creating an invalid Microsoft Excel file. Most of the time you get this error because your file was imported incorrectly. Datablist allows the import of text-based files such as CSV, TSV, etc., and Excel files. Datablist doesn't handle binary files, SQL files, etc.

If your data is valid but you have a cell with very long text. You can get around this limitation by exporting your collection into a CSV file.
