Export to CSV from service, is converting negative values to text format

When i export the data to csv from desktop, the number formatting is fine.

But the export to csv from the service, is converting negative numbers to text format and the postive numbers are in the number format (both from the same column).

Not sure if it is a bug.

Having the same problem. Export to CSV file in desktop works fine, but in Service there's now showing a ' before each negative number. Generating a CSV file from Service worked fine a month ago.


This needs to be fixed quickly.

This started for me today after my PowerBI Desktop upgraded itself to Version: 2.82.5858.641 64-bit (June 2020) overnight. This needs to be fixed. It's clearly an introduced bug. Peter

All export to csv with this issue is causing major failure to loading of those csv into other downstream systems. Can someone please fix this asap.
