Unable to save the report

I have created about 10 reports and I am trying to create additional reports and I receive the attached message.  What does this mean.  Need help!

Re: Unable to save the report

It indicated that you had 10 reports.  That would have nothing to do with the Dashboard, or the pages within a report.  Just the number of reports listed in the Reports section.

 

That is actually the first time i've seen a limit listed for the reports section.

 

This the first time i've seen this limit.  This only is a limit if you are not a Pro user.  Pro users can have more than 10 reports.  I verified this on my end.  The only way you could be a Pro user currently is if you were an existing Power BI for Office 365 subscriber (paid), or signed up for the 60 day Trial for Pro.  Until the GA on Friday.

 

You can tell you are a Pro user or not by looking at your data cap under the cog icon.  If it shows 1GB you are a Free user.  If it shows 10GB you are a Pro user.

hi @DRodCTO

 

Not sure, but check out the limitation of the "free" Power BI in the link below, perhaps you're exceeded the limit

Re: Unable to save the report

I looked up the Activity ID and it looks like it was showing that you were over the 10 report count.

Re: Unable to save the report

Can you clarify this please? This is the first I've heard about any limit. Are we talking about 10 pages in a report, or 10 reports on a dashboard? If there is a page limit on reports, why can I keep adding pages? (I stopped at 75 blank tabs - didn't try saving)

I threw together a quick blog regarding this as well.

Re: Unable to save the report

To circle back on this.  I have clarification that the issue is because you are limited to 10 reports on a given Dataset/Data Model.  It has nothing to do with whether you are a Free or Pro user.

 

I created an updated blog to reflect this information.
