Excel source to Report Builder

Hi All,

 

Is it possible to connect Report builder to Excel files and upload the report to Power BI Report server?

 

And also can we do email subscription for the same report?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Viresh

You can not link Excel file but copy-paste data from Excel to Report Builder as a dataset.

You can create email subscription, it has no difference.

Hi, I tried to do ODBC connection and i am able to connect it.

 

Thanks

 

Have a look at this link. It's for SSRS but should be same if you can see ODBS connection on Power BI Report Builder.
