Using a button to export table

Hi all,


Is it possible to use a button on your report that then automatically goes through the steps of exporting a table (which has been defined by filters, etc) to a PDF or Excel file? 


I know that I can do this manually, but was trying to automate the process to allow for a more user friendly approach.

Hi @HawkB,

Did you familiar with programming languages?
If that is the case, I'd like to suggest you deploy an API/service that invokes the export rest API with required values and binding the API/service URL to the button actions. (API URL + API parameters sent as query string format)

It is possible with Power Automate. Please refer to the below documents,

  2. Integrate Power Automate in a Power BI Report -

Thanks - they look like good solutions, but I am not sure we have the right level of membership for them to work effectively as a part of PowerBI.
