Excel export returns a recover message

Hi Guys,

I have a report published to Power BI Service which has data for a couple of months.

 

This report has a table visual and might have 40k to 50k rows for each month with some 45 columns

 

When I export the data to excel, the report gets exported. But when I try to open the excel, it is asking for me to recover the sheet before opening. Once I accept, It recovers the sheet and shows the data.

 

Below is the screenshot

After recovering, it gives me the link to get the cell information of recovered items in an xml file and the xml file with the actual link is displayed in browser

 

As far as I checked there's not any special items (except few DAX calculations) in the file that could corrupt the file and ask for a recovery of the same

 

Any idea what is happening?

Re: Excel export returns a recover message

HI @Thejeswar,

 

I think it might be compatibility issue between power bi service and new version excel.

Please contact to powerbi/office team to confirm if any unsupported format when export data from power bi service.
