Paginated report

Hi All,

 

I'm new here and had a quick question, 

 
Does paginated reports program require us setting up a report within it or whether we can link PowerBi report to paginated reports?
 
Thanks.

@Grist08  You can export a Power BI report as PowerPoint without the need to use Paginated Reports, that might help you, you get one slide/jpg per Power BI report page:

@AllisonKennedy We wanted to try this as part of a report automation solution. So we usually have a huge data sitting ne xcel which we link to our report on powerpoint as graph/donut charts etc. So we wanted to know if  Power Bi can help us automate that. So by creating Paginated reports and linking it to Power BI was one of the solution we thought might work. And hence the question about - whether we can link it and make that work?

Thank you very much for the reply. So if i dont have premium acess?

@Grist08  If you don't have premium, paginated reports aren't that useful really. You would only be able to work with them in Paginated Report Builder application directly, which is not the end product and NOT user friendly for final reporting.

@Grist08  Why are you interested in Paginated Reports? Do you have a specific need you think it might help with? If you can give a bit of info around that I can try to let you know if it's worth building a business case for premium or if there's another way. Please @mention me in reply so I don't lose track of this thread.

@Grist08  What do you mean by setting up report within or if you can link? If you have Premium you can set up Paginated report in PowerBI.com and it will look similar to this:
