Exporting issue, only 2500 rows exporting

I am new to Power BI and am struggling to understand why I am only getting 2500 rows of data to export, either through Power BI desktop or through POwer BI web.  

My report is only 7100 rows in size.  I'm not getting an error, or any messages. 

Can anyone help me please?

Hi @JenniferL ,

Please try the following methods and check if they can solve your problem:

1.Ensure that there are no filters applied to the report or visual that might be limiting the data.


2.If using Direct Query, there might be a limitation due to Power BI has a limit of 16 MB data for Direct Query exports.

Use DirectQuery in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

3.Verify if the ability to export data is restricted by the report designer or Power BI administrator.


Best Regards,

@JenniferL , Does your visual have 7000 rows, Power BI aggregates data at the visual level,


Can you count rows at a visual level using


Countrows(Summarize(Fact, Dim[Col], Dim2[Col], "_1",[Measure]))


All all measure and columns(group bys) and check number


or add rownumber and check

New DAX Function: Rownumber-


Sort desc on rownumber and check
