Create automated excel output on PowerBI report builder

I've created a sybase DB linked PowerBI dashboard for my client using import. The client requires the output in excel format to be dumped to a shared file location on a daily basis. Can I achieve this using report builder?. The dashboard is created on the PowerBI pro license and uses calculated columns and custom columns for transformation/business logics

Not applicable

If you want scheduled excel export you're going to have to use conventional SSRS paginated reports. This means you may well have to reproduce the business logic in conventional SQL or reproduce the PBI model in SSAS tabular in which case you can use this as a source for paginated (RDL) reports if you write a some DAX.


I have a very vague memory of someone wrting a blog about exporting a PBI model via SSMS and then importing it back into  conventional SSAS Tabular instance
