Re: power bi file size limits

Hi,

 

 

No that was not the issue. I found out that the real issue is the storage limit in Sharepoint since my file was located in a sharepoint folder. Hence, I had to configure my sharepoint storage in order to save the large pbix file. 

 

So now the issue is solved.

Hi @RezaAzimi ,

 

Can you share some detail content for us to know more about your issue?

 

E.g.

How many rows you try to save.
Which mode you used to connect.
Which database you connect.
Screenshots.

 

AFAK, pbix file at desktop side not has the size limit, the limit only contain at service side.(1GB)


For detail information, you can refer to below link:

Size limit of a file .pbx
