In order to better help us help you, please give some additional details. For example:
1. SQL Developer version
2. JDK version
3. Data types of the columns in this 16K length row
4. Number of rows.
5. Source database
If you are not already using SQL Developer 4.1.3, download and install it. There is no problem with having multiple SQL Developer / Java installs.
Gary - Thanks for your reply. I am currently at 188.8.131.52. I am not sure what the hitch was, but after rebooting my laptop, I am now again able to export this data without any difficulty or errors. I did notice that even before the export failing, I was also not being able to get a response from a data grid right-click 'Count rows' request. My guess is that whatever it was that was causing the row count to fail was also responsible for the export failure.
I will take your suggestion and definitely upgrade to 4.1.3. It may be that it already contains fixes for the behavior I experienced.
