Export report in xlsx format with Desktop version


Why the option "Export to xlsx" is available only in the webapp ?


I know i can convert csv to xls but the problem is the limit of 30k rows in csv.



Hi @Florent3628,


As you know, currently, .csv is the only export format supported  by Power BI desktop, which has a limitation (30K) to the maximum number of rows that can be exported. Someone has submitted this idea in below links, you could click to vote up or add your comments.
