How to modify a report that isn't a .pbix file

Hi!  I have built 3 reports on one dataset.  The first report I can access in PowerBI Desktop because it's a .pbix file, but the other two aren't available to modify.  Is there a way to modify the other two reports in Power BI Desktop?

Thanks, John.  Will the downloaded report retain the dataset as its data source?  If yes, then that seems perfect.

Yes it will.

Sorry, I didn't make that clear.

The 3 reports are in the service, and they're all very similar.  I built the 2 follow-on reports by duplicating the original report in Desktop, deleting all the tables, and then pointing the report at the original report's dataset.  I then uploaded the report to the service, and have been refreshing it there ever since.  

Hi @RickSchultz , In the service you should have an option to  download this file which will generate a pbix file

Hi @RickSchultz , can you provide more information on how the reports were created originally? Are they available in the service?
