Possible to allow a user to attach a file to a report?

I am 99% sure this is beyond the scope of Power BI, but figured I'd just ask: so let's pretend there's a matrix and you want to allow users to upload "backup" for certain data figures. Like, being able to right click on a data value and attach a spreadsheet backing it up would be nice. But I assume that would require a lot of custom programming, probably a custom solution altogether.

Hi @Zarlot531 


you might want to use drillthrough feature


Hope this will help

Thanks, I know about drilldown, but this is more for those situations where, like, an auditor wants to see a different spreadsheet as backup for the number you're showing. Kind of like how some of the reconciliation vendors out there (e.g., Blackline) do it. That's a custom solution though... where you have a subsidiary number, a GL number, a difference, a variance, and "oh here's the spreadsheet/attahment" that explains it.
