Data Export to Excel limited

A report we have currently has 12-13k rows but when exporting we receive less than 10k rows. We do not know why this is happening. But the current export limits are far greater as far as I know.

 

Someone explain the reason behind it.

Hi @Chandrarao,

 

Based on document, I found the size limit is 30k (free user)/150k(pro user).

 

For more detail information, you can take a look at below article:

Export data from Power BI visualizations

 

Limitations and considerations

•The maximum number of rows that can be exported is 30,000 (for Power BI Free users) and 150,000 (for Power BI Pro users).
•Custom visuals, and R visuals, are not currently supported.
•If there is unicode in the .csv file, the text in Excel may not display properly. Although, opening it in Notepad will work fine. Examples of unicode are currency symbols and foreign words. the workaround for this is to import the csv into Excel, instead of opening the csv directly.

 

Can you share some detail content about your issue?

I am having the same issue. I have 65,000 rows and I am a PowerBI Pro user. Why is this happening?

yes   i am  having the same problem  in particular the desktop  export is even worse. 

 

In fact in addition to this it does not export  any complex measures  like  calculate ( sales ; sameperiodlastyear (date))  if you had a report  that has a column of last years sales. 

 

Can anyone have a soluton to complex  measures to export to a spreadsheet ?
