Formatted Export to PDF in Power BI

by Inforiver | May 30, 2023 | ,

When you export data in a Power BI table or matrix report to a PDF, you quickly run into a few limitations. Let us take this sample report.

matrix report to a PDF powerBI

When you export it to a pdf file, you will notice that only the data in the visible part of the window gets exported. Refer image below. In essence, the data gets truncated (the Subcategory after Microwavescan’t not be seen), and the export is limited to a single page.

Here is the same report done through Inforiver matrix. We have also added a cell-level note for Refrigerators in the column with the bullet chart. You can also notice from the pagination navigator that there are two pages in this report.
