Generating Reports

Hello,

Excited to be on this community for Power BI.

I've uploaded an excel with data table. It generated a dataset, but it didn't generate Reports.

How can we generate reports for the imported data set?

Thank you.

Re: Generating Reports

Hey @bparov, you are probably in the wrong forum but I found this topic anyway. OK, need a little bit of information. When you say that you uploaded an excel with data table, did you do this from the Service or did you use the Desktop client to load your Excel and the Publish to the Service?

 

If you are purely in the Service, click on your dataset over on the left and then start expanding tables and adding visualizations. Click File | Save and it should ask you to create a report if one does not exist.

 

In the Desktop, once you load your date, click on the top icon on the left-hand side and essentially perform the same process.

 

The only time that Power BI automagically creates reports and dashboards for you is when you use a content pack so this is expected behavior.

@smoupre I am using Power BI from the browser or Service and there isn't a file tab to choose from.

Thank you for the reply and trying to help.
