How to keep Report Level Filters when using Analyze in Excel

Hi everyone,

 

I have a dataset (National Sales) that contains sales data for the entire company and several reports connected to this dataset using the Power BI Service data connector.

I then apply a Report Level Filter to show only the data for the western region and publish this report (West Sales) to the Power BI Service.

 

I have an Excel file that connects to one of this filtered report (West Sales) using the Power BI Publisher interface but the resulting Pivot Table exposes the data for all regions, and not just the one I filtered in the Power BI report (West Sales).

 

Is there a way to make filters on the Power BI report apply to the Excel file?

Hi @fVoss

After testing and researching, I'm afraid not keeping filters when using Power BI Publisher for Excel is by design.

You may submit a new idea to improve this feature.

@v-juanli-msft

Can you please explain reason behind why it is designed this way?

Any particular reason?
