Unfortunately, you can not sort column when export data. The workaround is instead of apply sorting in your visual, you can do sorting in Query Editor and apply sorting for your data and brings it in your visual, then publish and update it to Service reports.

@V-pazhen-msft - As suggested.I have tried at power query level  by reordering the columns. but once i have published the report into power bi services. still the order is coming by default.

I am not able to get the exported data for underlying data set with required column order.


Any suggestions?


Please support and let know if this feature is doable or not available.,



@V-pazhen-msft Paul Zhen,


I have tried reordering the columns in power query editor as per my requirement but still im not getting the order as expected it is coming in a way like calculated columns first next with some default order.


is that doable? can we set the reorder the column data for underlying dataset as per specific form?


Example: by default:

period_qq,country,customer,values1,value2,value3 value4


Expected result:


once i export the underlying data from chart



Please suggest.
