Every time I try to export underlying data for a report, I get an error: "Error exporting data". I've tried changing the visual (from stacked column to clustered) and even changed the aggregate format (count to count (distinct)). The only advice I've found in the community is to try changing the visuals.
I also tried downloading the Gateway tool and setting it up after checking my settings - the same sections that allow auto-refresh.
Does anyone have any further troubleshooting steps for me to try? If I need more in-depth support outside of the community, how do I contact that team?
The maximum number of rows that can be exported to .csv is 30,000.
The maximum number of rows that can be exported to .xlsx is 30,000 (for Power BI Free users) and 150,000 (for Power BI Pro users).
Power BI only supports export in visuals that use basic aggregates. Export is not available for visuals using model or report measures.
Custom visuals, and R visuals, are not currently supported.

What is your data source? Is there any possibility that you can share me the PBIX file so that I can test?
Ironically, I tried it just now again and had it work the first time but then had it fail on a second attempt. It also failed for a colleague who has been trying to export the data for his use. I look forward to any further advice that others have for this thread.
You can upload the PBIX file to OneDrive and send me the shared link via Private message.
Thanks for your PBIX file. I have no issues when exporting underlying data from your visual in the "Invalid Graph" page. All work as expected no matter how many times I export.
I would recommend you create a support ticket for your issue on the support.powerbi.com site.
