PowerBI RS export to excel


I have one question, I have published a PowerBI report on the server. I have a table that has some values ​​also colored (red or green). Users of these reports require the table to be exported to excel. in this excel they want the values ​​to be colored as well as in the PowerBI report.
Is this even possible and how?

@LeaRupnik Hi there, just recreate the same report in Report builder and deploy it in report server, it is absolutely works as per your request even after the export to excel.

The only other option would be to build this table as a paginated report as those will export to excel with the formatting retained.

not currently possible. There were some recent improvements on the Power BI Service side but even these did not include colors. Maybe in a later version.
