Table (or other visual) breaking a single record onto multiple rows

Hello,

I have created a basic table at the request of my customer. The table works fine, however, the customer wants his final deliverable in PowerPoint. The table is too wide (and has too many records) to fit everything on a single slide. To resolve the first part of this, does anyone know if there is a "wrap" function for tables, or any other visual that would allow me to put, for example, the first 5 fields of a record on one row and then the next 5 fields on a second row? ...then, repeat this for every row in the table.

 

Thanks!

Matt

Hi @EH_MW 

 

Power BI and PowerPoint do not inherently support the "row break" function for tables, which automatically splits the fields of a single record into multiple rows in the same visual object.

 

You can try the following:

 

Consider breaking the table into several smaller tables. For example, if you have a table with 10 fields, create two tables: one for the first 5 fields and another for the last 5 fields.

 

You can then place these tables side by side or on separate slides for easier viewing.

 

Please consider using Power BI to paginate reports.

If you must use PowerPoint, consider making design changes. For example, create horizontal slide orientations, reduce font sizes and adjust slide layouts to maximise space.

 

Links can also be added to make the Power BI report an interactive experience, allowing users to navigate the data in more detail as needed.
