Difference in export data and value shown on visualisation

Hi PowerBI community,

 

I am having an issue that the visualisation on Power BI is different from the data that I exported. I have searched for this problem but to no avail. Does anyone knows the reason why and how do I rectify this issue?

Hi  @andrewtan1993 ,

 

Do you export the data from Service or desktop?

If you export from desktop,you could only export summarized data,that's why you see the differences.

Make an example as below:

If you export below visual to csv file:

You would see:

But actually the data is as below:

All depends on whether you have exported the underlying data.

Check the reference below:

Kelly
