    Thanks for your feedback on this issue – while we’d like to enable this, there is currently no timetable around doing so. There is the option as a workaround the create a paginated view as a drillthrough of the visual and have a formatted version you can export to Excel, but understand this isn’t a solution everyone can take advantage of currently.

    I agree, this is very disappointing this it not out of the box. I understand theory they want PBI to be an end product and not use excel however they really don't understand how users need to use the data and this results in significant manual work to copy totals. Export should match exactly what the view is or allow an option to choose this. Power of PBI is to get to certain level of data and insights and then it fails when not being able to export that outcome. PBI is not always the end step Microsoft!!! This issue defeats efficiencies that it is meant to promote. Many of our users refuse to use PBI because of this silly issue and want us to implement competitor tools unless this is fixed. It also currently can't do anywhere near as easily or quickly what can be done in excel or with as much control. Until PBI can provide better flexibility and ease of use, people will stay on excel for some aspects of analysis.
