Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

There are still some inconveniences.
1. Text boxes are all out of the PP page, 2. the size of them all has changed and 3. they are all the same size (0 cm width).
4. The export works after many tries. (firstly blank pages)

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hey guys,

 

I used to get a the status code 500 error, when trying to export a report to PowerPoint.

After reading a bit someone suggested that the file size might've been too big, so I shrunk it down. My file doesn't go above 40MB. My report consists of 10 pages with about 5/6 visuals with data on there. When I try to export to PowerPoint, I now get error code 403

I hope the performance issues with the export feature can be fixed soon.

 

Also, I don't know what status code 403 means.

Hi HarmVanG,

 

40MB is still a big PBIX that might fail with a timeout.

As for 403, this is an authorization problem. First time I see it. If persist, please contact our support email at mpbisup@microsoft.com.

 

Thanks,

If you are using any custom visuals or R it will not work. 

I had the same issue after the fix.

Try changing the custom visuals to the default visuals and remove all the custom visuals from Visualizations panel and try again.

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi Ron,

 

I've actually reduced the size to about 23 MB. I don't get why I'm getting authorization problems though:

 

- I'm the creator of the dataset

- I'm an admin in the group workspace.

 

I'm also not using any custom visuals or R visuals.

 

I've tried re-uploading the dataset but it didn't help at the moment I'm getting error code 500 again Smiley Frustrated

Hi,

 

Not sure if anybody has run in similar situation when exporting to PPT like this: only PPT cover slide, and rest slides are blank. No error message. One of my datasets is very big though.

 

Thanks!

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi,

 

This issues was resolved. To apply the resolution you'll have to save again your report before exporting to PowerPoint

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

Hi Ron,

 

Not sure if you replied to my post...

 

I exported first report 2 days ago, and I did get the report exported to the PPT, although the image was not good enough since some chart's background color was messed up and one chart came out from nowhere was on the image.

 

Yesterday I started exporting the second dashboard with 2 datasets and 6 pages, and got a cover slides and 6 blank slides. Today I kept tring and removed the big dataset and 5 pages so only a very small dataset and one page with three bar charts, and still got blank slide in the ppt. during the process, I did remove the dahboard, report and dataset on the Powre BI service and saved the file on desktop before every publishing.

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks,

 

Erin

Re: Export to PowerPoint (Preview) feedback

You have to save the report on the web not in the desktop version. Save it again and it works. But generally I found this feature is a big junk. It changes the local format (for me German to English) / It changes the font of texts / size of texts (specially in the tables it cut out always) / The bottom graphics wouldn't have the right position. / After the March-update all text boxes are out. / you have to try the export many times. / and more bugs. 😕
