Please check if your report has touch these known limitiations:
For export from matrix visuals usingData with current layout, consider the following:
Matrices with columns and/or values but no rows will be exported as having rows and/or values but no columns
Matrices with only one row and/or values but no columns will be exported as table (no right border separator)
If theShow on rowstoggle is set to 'On' in Power BI Desktop for a table or matrix visual, the visual format would not be preserved when data is exported to Excel
If theRow subtotalstoggle is set to 'Off' in Power BI Desktop for a matrix visual, but the matrix visual has expanded and collapsed sections, exported data will contain subtotals for rows. To work around this issue, use theExpand | Allcommand from the visual's context menu."

Thank you for replying. Unfortunately none of those seem to apply. I even tried to export with just a table visual and I'm still seeing the Export Data with current layout feature greyed out still. Honestly if I can just get this feature to work or just know it's a bug or a limitation with on-prem so I'm not wasting anymore time troubleshooting this.
