Get a .pbix file in an older version

Hi to everybody!


I'm trying to load a .pbix file in my company PBI Reporting Service (Version: 2.73.5586.1501 64-bit (september 2019), but the file is not compatible with that old version. There is any way to save the file in another format or version or any way to make changes to do it compatible?

Hi @Burbu7 


It is more suggested to upgrade Power BI Report Server as old versions are not supported any more.

@Burbu7 , if you have moved it higher version, difficult to do that.

Using external tools like tabular editor you can save it in text format and maybe convert it back to an older version. But I have not tried that
