Create a button to export data to excel

Hi, I would like to export a calculated dax table to excel, because other people don´t have access or don´t know how to use Power Bi, I would like to create a button to export a table to excel just by clicking it, is this possible?  In excel it would be easy doing this in Visual Basic but I am new to Power BI. Thanks for the Help

While I'm unsure about creating a button to export data I think the functionality you are looking for already exists. In the top right corner of any visual you have the three dots and if you select it there's the option to export the contained data. I hope this helps!

This really is an FAQ, and I'm amazed that MS have not been able to add this ability in over a year. There are lots of really useful improvements coming through - come on, this can't be difficult.

I've seen the 'solution' posted above - it's a tacky workaround. We've documented this convoluted process so our business stakeholders can do it, but really, is it too much to ask?
