Can't Export to Excel or Copy? (Possibly Too Much Data)

Hello Everyone!


I am handling a LOT of data. We're talking about millions of points, separated into multiple dataframes. I need to get the data into Excel. The shapefile that I'm trying to extract data from has about 100,000 rows and 20 columns. I first tried using the export to Excel tool, but it errored out. I then tried copying from the attribute table and pasting into Excel. Again, it errored in Excel, and then ArcMAP crashed. I thought that maybe there was just too much data for Excel, but I looked up the extents and it shows that Excel can handle up to a million rows and thousands of columns. So I don't know what to do at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
