You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Publishing a report to the web

I've already covered this in one guise under sharing a report, but this feature allows you to embed a Power BI report within another webpage.  Like this, in fact!

As someone who has spent ages trying to get embedded reports to work on websites in the past, I'm happy to report that this works beautifully!

To get this to work, choose to generate the necessary HTML:

Publish to web

With the report selected, choose this menu option.

You can now select the width of your IFrame, and copy and paste the embedded HTML:

Embedded HTML

Copy the HTML generated.

Now paste this into your HTML page:

Pasting HTML

A sample of the HTML for the link at the top of this page.

So simple!
