Paginated Report_Export Issue!



We've created paginated report in Power BI Report Builder (Premium per user lisence) and published it in the workspace.

Now it is necessary to export all the report data (500 000 rows!, 60 columns) to excel file but the export process continues for hours without any end and result...






The data source for this report is PBI dataset (file size 8 MB,not so big); we've also tested dax query in the dataset of paginated report: it doesn't require any optimization because retrieves all the data in 86 sec in dax studio.


Could you please help us to fix this issue?

Maybe anyone knows if there are other ways to complete the export or it is really a performance issue of paginated reports


Moreover, report loading is also too slow...



Thank you in advance!

Hi @Anonymous !

This doesn't seems a feasible option from Power BI. Although your report s render fine in Power BI, but when you try to export it to another medium, it needs to generates the page layout for that medium. With 500K rows & 60 columns it's very complex job for the renderer to fit a page layout that's why it timing out the operation.

Please try to directly use this dataset in excel.
