Re: Unable to export to Power BI Desktop (.pbix) format

Hi, sorry for the ambiguous statement. I meant deleting all visuals from each tab in the report. The deletion of visuals was done in Power BI Service.

Re: Unable to export to Power BI Desktop (.pbix) format

Hi @veee,

 

When you are trying to download the .pbix, are you going into the dashboard/report from the Apps link on the left menu bar, or are you going to Workspaces and selecting the workspace?  I just tried a test one I have, and when I selected it using the Apps menu item, it would not let me edit the report nor down load it.  When I selected the Workspaces item in the left menu and selected the workspace, I was able to edit and download the pbix.

Hi, I accessed the dashboard via the Workspaces item, so the "Edit" and "Download PBIX" shows up on my screen. The problem is, clicking Download PBIX will result in the error message that I have posted previously.

Have you tried making a copy of the .pbix file you have with a different name then uploading that to the Power BI service and see if your collegue can download that as a .pbix?

Yes, I have, it also fails. Even I myself cannot download the pbix once I upload it to PBI Service...

I would ask IT to check your download policy settings. I think that it is possibly being blocked.

Re: Unable to export to Power BI Desktop (.pbix) format

Is it still a download policy problem if I'm able to download other different pbix files? The download just doesn't work for this particular pbix file.

 

This is why I tried deleting each visual to see whether any visuals are causing the problem. But even after emptying the dashboard, the problem still persists.

You are correct that it is not then a download problem.

I think that there is an issue with this particular PBIX file.

Re: Unable to export to Power BI Desktop (.pbix) format

Are there any known causes that are related the contents of the pbix file? As far as I know, it is not mentioned in the list of pbix export limitations on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-export-to-pbix#limitations-and-considerations.
