How do I use the report format I have created with different excel data sheets?

Hey guys,

 

I am currently working on a project with my company using PowerBI and am approaching my first roadblock.  I have designed a format for the report that I want to use and then extract via a PDF.  However, the problem is I need to use this same format for multiple countries that we have the data for.  The data in every excel file is the same format, and I just want to be able to keep the format uniform, while being able to easily just upload the new excel file into it.  How do I go about doing this?

Hi @Anonymous ,

From your description, you could refer to using template in power bi:

You could use it to store your default format and apply it for different data.

Hey Daniel @v-danhe-msft 

 

 I think this template route is what I need, however, when I saved my file as a template, I then uploaded it and it still contained the data from my previous excel file.  How do I get it to be able to switch datasets but maintain the exact template?

Hi @Anonymous ,

It is decided by how you connect data, you could refer to below blog about sql server:
