Error exporting to Excel file

Is this some known issue I am not finding? When I do export to .CSV, it works and I can open it in Excel. However, when I excel default file option (.xlsx), then it shows this error:


 "Sorry, we couldn't export your visual data right now. Please try again later."

I tried it now and it works for me.

I do know of people having some unrelated issues in the USA data centres. I am currently operating out of the Australian Data centres.

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Hi @Visualize_Power,


I also verified that export data to .xlsx still works for me(North Central US Data Center). 


As we cannot reproduce the issue, I would suggest you create a ticket on Power BI Support for better assistance on this issue. Smiley Happy
