Export into an Existing Template of Excel

Hello everyone,

I would like to have a PowerBI report that is quite simple. Some data in a table and a date slicer. However, I have an Excel file that is stored locally that is in a set template that has existing tables. 

I am looking to export the data from the Power BI table in the report, and have it entered in the existing template of the Excel file.

 

What is the best way to go around this?

I would recommend using Power Query in the Excel file to query the dataset, then referencing that data in formulas in your template. Then you'd "refresh" to update it. You don't want to be physically inserting actual values into the template, it'll be much less painful to go with the flow of how the tool was designed to be used.
