Increase Export Data Limits
In late 2016, Power BI improved our export data options to allow exporting up to 150,000 rows to Excel from a visual on a Power BI dashboard for Pro users. If you require higher limits, please vote on this idea. If you have more specific requirements, please leave them in the comments.
Dear power Bi team,
I'm using power BI as well as other tools in many different environments. Today PowerBI is a very nice and flexible solution, yet its competitors are offering data export with a virtually "unlimited" set of rows. I think the issue is not technical here but functional.
We do all agree, trend is not to export everything from consolidated repo back to users spreadsheet - and lose control over data quality .
But when it comes to prototyping / checking data accuracy / checking ETL processes with QC. Then it is a real showstopper.
Thanks for helping us leveraging this fantastic tool!
Why limit the export to less than Excel can handle? 150K is great unless your data set is 150,001 or higher...Granted we are trying to change business culture to stop exporting large data sets, assuming they are exporting to do other stuff with but it takes time to get all of the custom work arounds sorted out and provided for. The export limit is one of our biggest complaints from the detractors here.
It will be great for free user to increase the export rows to 50,000 or 100,000.

500,000 would be a nice limit for us. The tool is outputting things from our database which has a very complicated but limited front-end application. No one thought it would ever be easy to retrieve so many records so efficiently. The export function increasing to 150k was great for us, but there are many cases where a larger limit would be very helpful. We have a lot of individual transactions tied to projects that we would like to use the tool to export out.
