Exporting a Matrix visual to Excel

What are the best options to export data from a Matrix to Excel? Is it possible to keep the same formatting from Powerbi to Excel? I only get .csv in the Desktop and the .xslx online. However when I export it and open in excel, it shows a blank sheet with no pivot table.

Hi @Sagejah9 ,

 

To work around the issue temporarily, you can use @MattAllington's suggestion to create a PowerPivot table in Excel. Or you can use PowerBI Tiles add-in in the Excel to get matrix visual. See: Integrating Power BI Tiles into Office documents.

 

Besides, I found there is a same feature request posted in Power BI Idea forum, you can vote and comment on it: Allow Table and Matrix Data Exports to Match PowerBI Visual.

 

Best Regards,

@Sagejah9 another way is to create a Power BI report builder and use it to export the data but for this, you need Premium or PPU, and this is used by tons of my customers.

Hi @Sagejah9 ,

 

Exporting the matrix as a csv is the only way I am aware of.
