I have experienced that PBID files that are encoded as UTF-16 cannot be opened in PowerBI desktop.
If I convert the file manually to UTF 8 (for example using notepad++), the file can be opened with no issues.
But it is not a solution for me, since the file is autogenerated (for hundred of users) and send as attachment (base 64 encoded) using Azure GraphAPI send mail.
I do not know, if this is a PowerBI or an Azure Graph API issue, but buttonline is, that I cannot autogenerate mails with PBIDS attachments.
Or am I doing it wrong?
Hi @MortenLange ,
I have no experience in dealing with this issue before now. I tried my best to find an explanation for this problem in some relevant Microsoft documentation but failed.
Based on the above information, if you are a Power BI Pro licensee, you can create a support ticket for free and a dedicated Microsoft engineer will come to solve the problem for you.
It would be great if you continue to share in this issue to help others with similar problems after you know the root cause or solution.
