ISSUE with publishing report

I'm getting the following error: A report has already been published with this name.
I downloaded a pbix file from the PBI Service, made some changes in PBI Desktop and tried to publish it back. Getting this error:

There was a similar topic back in 2016.


https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/this-report-was-already-published-to-the-selected-destinati...

this report was already published to the selected destination
As suggested in the thread, I tried logging out,  logging in back rebooting and even reinstalling the Power BI desktop, but nothing helped.

 

Has anyone experienced anything like that?

Hi @StanS ,

Please sign in Power BI Service and select the workspace which the report locate in. And click "Get Data" and navigate to Files menu to click "Get" to upload the related report file(.pbix). Later check whether the report can be replaced successfully...

@yingyinr Thank you for your suggestion. I tried it, I got the following pop-up

and then I got a screen below. I checked my report in PBI Service and figured it was still an old version

Hi @StanS ,

Did you click the 'Replace it' button on the popup window? I tested the method I mentioned in my previous reply and it works fine. The steps I followed were as follows:
1. Download the report named sample_0618 from the service (there is only one table visual in the report)

When the pop-up window appears, click the "Replace it" button to replace the previous report. After the upload is complete, open it and check it. The report is already updated with the following information.

The version of Power BI Desktop I am using is 2.99.303.0 64-bit (November 2021), could you please provide me with the version of your Power BI Desktop ? If it is not the latest version, could you please update it to the latest version? Then open the downloaded pbix file to change and save it. Later follow my method and see if you can update the report file information. Thank you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any comment or doubt.

Have you tried to remove the old version from the Power BI Service and publish the new version from the desktop version?

@VahidDM this will work for sure, but I want to keep the same direct link.

@VahidDM  No, as I need it to stay available under the same link.

@StanS
