Open PBIX File from SharePoint

Hello all,

 

Is it possible to store and access a PBIX file from SharePoint via the PowerBi Desktop?

 

My reason for asking is that I have previously used my OneDrive, but I've started to run out of space for the number of reports and other files I have stored on there. I've migrated a few PBIX reports onto SharePoint, but I cannot work out how to open the files through the desktop app to continue working on them. The only solution I've found seems to involve downloading the file and re-uploading them.

 

Can anyone assist with this?

 

Thanks.

Hi @Saes 

 

Try the video, once the folder is synced you can access the files on your PC.

Hi @Saes 

 

Sure you can store PBIX files same as any other files in SharePoint folders and access these, just sync the folder.

Hi @Mariusz, that's good to hear. Is there a unique way of accessing the files - I'm clicking File > Open, but cannot navigate to the SharePoint site - it doesn't appear anywhere. Is this the step I'm missing?

@Mariusz Thank you! That was the solution I was looking for - syncing the files. Such a simple step, but never mentioned any of the guidance I had read through. Thanks!
