Hi @sreetejreddy ,

This is currently not supported.You can use Microsoft Flow to automate the extraction of your data from the FTP server to your OneDrive or SharePoint.

Hi @sreetejreddy ,


There is still no direct functionality to export Power BI reports(.pbix files) to Excel format. 

You might consider using Power BI Report Builder(.rdl files) which gives an out-of-the-box functionality to excel export.


You can also look at this post for help.
