How to copy column data from a table in power bi service

How do you copy multiple selected values in a column ?

siphesihle_0-1681385538343.png

when i choose copy value only 1 value gets copied even though i have selected multiple values, and when i copy selection it includes data from other columns which i dont need. I want to only select multiple values from 1 column and copy them.

Hi @siphesihle  and @renee-kingsbury 

 

The only option is to either export or copy the selection and then edit your response before you send it out it email. Also, you can create a single-column table for your reference to copy that and send it out as per your need.

Same question.   Have you had any luck with copying a column?  There needs to be a "Copy selection" for column(s).  I have a need to quickly copy a column to paste the list into an email.

Hi @siphesihle 

 

The best option is to export the data from the visual and then use data as needed from excel. Or if you have pbix file you can go to data view and can copy the column and then paste it in excel.

I have the same question.  I understand there is an option to export but it adds time to download and then open the exported file.   I just need to copy a column so I can quickly paste a list into an email.  Need a "copy>selection" option for columns.  Any idea if this is something being explored?
