How to keep the Matrix table format when export to Excel file ?

 

Hi everyone,

 

I used the PBI Matrix table to display the result, but when I clicked "Export data", the exported excel format will convert to the raw data format (Please see below Image 2).

Is there anyone know how to keep the Matrix table format and view  when export to excel?

"Export"  with "live"  connection to Excel   (both statements are lies)  and recreate your matrix format in Excel. Then you can refresh your data source connection in Excel at any time which will run a Direct Query DAX query against the dataset.

Hi @lbendlin ,

 

Thanks for the reply.😊

So the only thing I can do is to re-build the matrix in my exported excel file, there is no way to keep the orginal Power BI format when I exported to Excel.

 

Best regards,

Marry
