Error while exporting to Power point across all reports

Feature was working not more than 2 weeks ago.


Tenant settings allow for export.... 


Nothing listed in the Support Status for Power BI yet lots of users submitted similar request.


Why was this taken out of preview if it is so unreliable?

Status: New

Hi @ktbarr3125


Is there any error displays when you try to export the report to PowerPoint? Please share detail error information with us. 


Have you tried with other reports, does the same issue occur? 


Also please check if you are hitting the limitation below:


Best Regards,

Thank you Qiuyun, @v-qiuyu-msft 


The error is only happening with one report. The report does not hit any of the listed limitations. The only thing different in this report vs. the others is: OKViz Bullet Chart Custom Visual (I updated the visual today and retested), the use of bookmarks, and 1 synced slicer. Export to PDF does not work either. The report is only 7 pages, 2 of which are entirely text with an image imported. I have also tested this on multiple machines.


Here are the error details:

Hi @ktbarr3125,


Is it possible to share the pbix file with us? If it is, you can upload the pbix file to your OneDirve and send the share link to me via private message. 


Also please try the different browsers to test if the same issue occurs. 


Best Regards,
