Thanks Blake! That is what I was hoping for-but since we're moving to 2.8.1 this week anyway, looks like it won't matter (those bulk_import settings are removed in 2.8.1, so...no limit then?).

You might want to upgrade to 2.8.1 first, it runs as a background job now, and that will help with larger imports:

2.8.0 does have it in the config settings:
AppConfig[:bulk_import_rows] = 1000
AppConfig[:bulk_import_size] = 256

Hi everyone,

We're planning to do some test ingests of big collections using the spreadsheet importer (aspace-import-excel) on our ASpace sandbox, which is currently on version 2.8. I don't know if this was the case in the past, but I'm hearing from some folks that there is an upper-limit to the number of rows the ingest spreadsheet can have, which for us appears to be set to a max of 2000. Does anyone know if this is something that can be increased, like in a setting somewhere?
