Excel Export - Autofit Column Width

Whenever I export summarized data from any Power BI visual to excel, I am getting defaulted excel column width (80 pixel) that does not read well on open.

 

Would it be possible to export with autofit column width or option to adjust the column width being exported?

Re: Excel Export - Autofit Column Width

Hi @acbg,

 

For your scenario, I'm afraid that is not related to Power BI setting. 

 

You should set the Autofit Column Width in Excel, such as Home——Format——Autofit Column Width

 

You'd better have a contact with Excel forum to get more professional help.

@v-piga-msft Thanks for the reply. 

 

Was hoping it would be similar to SSRS:

Not a show stopper but would be a nice to have feature.
