Matrix export Error

We are a expiriencing a problem when we are trying to export data (summarized) from a matrix vizualation that contains two field in rows and several metrics in values.
The process starts with a pop up window that says "Exporting data ..." and it fails after a while with an error that says "File couldn't be created. Executing the query for the Export Data resulted an error."
There is no more info related. Anyone experienced anything similar?
Error does not seem to relate to data size, it occurs even with relatively small datasets.

@philosopher I'm receiving the same error but with current view exports from a matrix but not summarized view.  Did you find any resolution to your problem? 

Problem dissappeared after a couple of days with no actions from my side. It seems it was a pbi service problem.

You should probably just wait

Hi @philosopher ,

Please check if the data or the matrix visual has hit some limitations of exporting underlying data feature.


Best Regards
