Matrix Column Export Limit

Hi All,

I have a report published on service and I am using Matrix visual; I have used 19 columns into Matrix Row Section, FY & FY Month in Matrix Column Section, and a measure as a value. Coming to the point, the measure is created in the way that it should return up to 61 months data based on slicer selection. I am trying to export data but when it exports into excel it exports only 60 columns including subtotal column. Ideally it should export all the columns that are showing in the visual (61 month columns + 6 Sub Total column + 1 Grand Total column). 


  • Report has only 7k records, I am using Matrix visual and exporting data using Data with Current Layout option to retain Matrix formatting.
  • And getting this note in excel exported file “Exported data exceeded the allowed volume. Some data may have been omitted”.


The 2nd point says exceeding some limit, but I am not getting which limit. (Record limit, Query size limit or Data size limit)

Can anyone help me on that? how I can exports all the column?
Is there any limit to export the data (Specifically asking for Matrix column)?




I have done some tesing to check the column export limit but seems there is no as such. I have used date field under column section of Matrix visual and exported data from service, it exports 1200 columns. 


Thanks in advance.

HI @VishalDindurkar 


It sounds to me like it is the combination of all your columns and your rows which is going over the limit of data to be exported.
