Excel Export Showing Table & Field on the Columns

Has anyone had this issue? It has been happening alot lately with my Excel exports.

When I look at my visual in PowerBi, the table visual shows the name of the column, however, when I export to Excel it is showing the data table name & the name of the field.

This is also happening where is shows the applied filters. I would also would not think it would show my hidden filters.

Side Note: I just did the monthly update so my PowerBi is up-to-date.

Re: Excel Export Showing Table & Field on the Columns

Hi @callen37 ,

When do you have this issue?

By my tests, I have exported data from power bi desktop and power bi service, but I cannot reproduce your issue.


If it is convenient, could you describr your steps in details so that we could understand your scenario better?

Best  Regards,
