I suspect this comes with the November update. When I try to do an Export Data from a Matrix or Table I am now getting a Data Exceeds the Limit error, I used to be able to Export data with a wide date range but after the update it's now giving me that even if I select a single date to export.
What's going on?
Solved! Go to Solution.
the documentation states that there is a limit of rows that can be exportet to csv, this limit is 30000 rows.
Using the target format xlsx this limit is 150k rows, the export to xlsx option is available in Power BI Service.
These limits are described here:
Please don't ask me why such a limit exists 🙂 I'm just the messenger
I can reproduce your issue in November update. Based on my test, the message will throw when you export >=500 rows data. When your visual contains >=500 rows data, as long as you click "Continue" button, the data will be exported in CSV properly.
Besides, I will report this issue internally and post back once I get any updates.
Thank you for looking and kindly post back. Okay so the "Continue" option will not truncate anything?
As of now I recreated everything in Excel PowerQuery just for that portion where we need the data exported in CSV.
When I test with 10000 rows and use Export data option, the data are not truncated, but for the specific limit, we still wait for PG's response.
What more I have observed is that if it reaches a certain number of rows, it removes duplicate columns which I intentionally placed but if it's less rows it just leaves duplicate columns alone.
So probably I could say it does not truncate by rows(to a certain number maybe 30K or 100K) but it certainly does remove duplicate columns.
The fix of this issue will be released on January.
It’s time for another PBI Community recap!
