Export only extracts 300 rows on Summarized Data, File Format .csv

Hi there,


I have a noticed a recent issue where people are trying to use the export via the Summarized Data and the File Format .csv 


It says it has a limit of 30,000 rows but on any export it only retrieves the first 300?


Can this be investigated please?

This issue has been fixed. Please update Power BI Desktop to the latest version and re-export.

@clearyvictori export to excel feature is a PBI service tenancy setting - same goes with export to csv. Do check with your PBI Admin.


In the interim, you can use your PBI desktop (if you have access to the pbix file) and use it's export to csv function. It works in my tests.

This is happening for me right now and I have multiple tables I need to download by tomorrow, all less than 750 rows and I can't. I can't use an older version of PowerBI as I work for a corporation where I cannot control my downloads. Please please please get this fixed

Just download as excel, delete the blank rows at the top and save as csv.

For PBI Desktop , before this issue fixed, can use the old version (May 2023 Edition) to open the files and export, it works from my side.

Same issue here aswell. Last month we exported a table with around 3000 rows, however, exproting the same table we are getting the 'Data exceeds the limit' error and only pulls the first 300 rows.

Are there any engineers of Microsoft involved in this issue?

It started working for me yesterday.  I pulled down the pbix file to my PC and published to a different Premium workspace and seems to be OK.  I just pulled down a .csv file with over 23,000 rows of data.
