Export error: "Your data is too large. Some data sampling may occur."

Hello,

 

I have created a report that contains 47,678 rows. As not everyone has Power BI Desktop, I am trying to export the data to a CSV file and I am getting the error shown below.

 

I do not have the option of publishing to the Power BI cloud as that is not enabled for my company.

 

Is there any other way I can export the data into CSV/Excel?

 

Thanks in advance.

I suggest you directly import the source data into the Excel/CSV file. For example, if it's from SQL table, you can copy the query result set into Excel worksheet.

Couple questions:

 

First, when you are exporting the data, are you using the ellipses "..." in the visual and exporting that way?

 

Second question, what is the source of your data, where is it coming from?

Yes, I am using the Export data option by clicking the ... on the top right of the report:

The data for the report comes from SQL Server tables that I imported into PBD. The PBD has some custom DAX functions.

Dear users/Microsoft,

 

Please don't tell me that PBD is incapable of exporting 47K of data! If I am unable to export this data then 5 days of analysis, learning PBD + DAX has been a total waste of my time.

 

Is there any way I can get my report's data out of PBD? For a tool that can ingest data from so many sources, it does not offer much in terms of export! Is that by design or ...?

Hi,

 

I can't export more than 1001 rows and I need about 10k rows with about 20 fields... how much is exactly "too large"?

 

Regards,

M

Is there any point in voting for an issue that is marked as "completed" as the one you are referring to is?

 

The size limit seems ridicously low. What are the exact limitations? Is it the total data size or number of rows or what?

Since the last update... you can now export up to 30K rows. Still too low as other I would just use Access.

I agree.  30K is still too low.  Since there are a little over 40,000 zip codes in the US, this limitation means that you won't be able to export data that has been aggregated at the zip code level (which MANY business people do).
