Excel Export Error

Hi All,


I take error when I try to excel export.  Error is "File couldn't be created". How can I solve this error? Can you please support me?


Thank you.




Error Exporting to Excel

Go to 'Apps & Features' in Windows and find the Microsoft Office entry.
Select the entry and choose Modify.
Select the Quick Repair option, then click Repair. If Excel exporting still doesn't work, also try Online Repair. 
Save any open unfinished work and restart the computer when convenient.

Hi @basi0001 ,

Please confirm that you set the export data correctly in Power BI Desktop for RS.

To set these options:

  1. Start in Power BI Desktop.

  2. From the upper left corner, select File > Options and Settings > Options.

  3. Under CURRENT FILE, select Report settings


    4. Make your selection from the Export data section
