Wrong formatting when I try to export a matrix to Excel

Sometime tables just do not export correctly. For example, I have a matrix that looks like this:

 

Account   Description   Januari   Februari   March

1               A                   €5         €5             €5

2               B                   €10       €10           €10              

3               C                   €15       €15           €15

 

However, when I export the data I get this:

 

Account   Description  Sum of Amount   Month

1               A                 €5                         Januari

1               A                 €5                         Februari

1               A                 €5                         March

2               B                 €10                       Januari

 

What causes this? Can I make it just copy the matrix as a table instead of giving me rows of the data?

Hi @TKA ,

 

You could vote up the idea: Allow Table and Matrix Data Exports to Match PowerBI Visual. The product team has respond it already. So it may be implemented as soon as possible.

I've tried these 2 options, using the "..." popup and then export:

 

TKA_0-1599128413028.png

 

Summarized: Gives me the correct data but in the wrong formatting (month written summarized):

TKA_2-1599128693554.png

Underlying data: Gives me all the query rows/columns, not the table format (not a screenshot of all the columns):

TKA_1-1599128661099.png

 

For the export to be useful for my goal, I just want an Excel copy of the visual:

TKA_3-1599128738840.png

 

 

 

EDIT: I could of course just export underlying data and then create a pivot table, but I figured that there's already an option that does this for me. 

@TKA - To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to export the data exactly as the visual in all cases. You will have to export the underlying data and then pivot/unpivot as appropriate.
