Saving Measure Value into Column or Export for historical use

 

 

Disclaimer: I know Power BI does not support incremental data loads and it is not ideal to have a reporting system keep record of historical data.

 

I receive a daily data export from a third party so I cannot write to the original database. I am needing to save a daily, weekly, monthly measure total to a column to catalog or at least export the measure value to Excel and save there. I'm assuming this is somehow possible with Power Query.  It's just three scalar values to be saved daily.

 

Any advice? 

 

 

Thanks

@Kharvok,

You can drag measure to visual and use "Export data" to export measure value to CSV. And if you want to export measure value to Excel, you can publish PBIX file to Power BI Service, there is Excel option for export data in Service.

There is no way to automate this in powerquery?

@Kharvok,

You can use R script to export data to CSV/excel , please check alanhodgson’s reply about this method in this thread. It is not automatic, but when you run the visual or update dataset, it will export data to csv/excel.

Meanwhile, you can vote this idea about auto export data from visual.
