Classroom training -  Power BI Paginated Reports

Classroom Training

Paginated Reports for Power BI

Classroom training course - online version also available

£850 + VAT for most venues (£995 + VAT for London)

2 days

Power BI paginated reports allow you to create reports optimised for printing and exporting within Power BI (even when your data spans many pages).  In this two-day course you will learn how to use Power BI Report Builder to create paginated reports, and how to publish these to the Power BI Service.  You’ll learn how to connect to Power BI datasets, how to create basic DAX queries and how to present the results using a variety of visualisations such as tables, matrices, charts and other fancy graphical indicators (if you’re interested in using SQL Server data sources and deploying reports to an on-premises report server, you may prefer our standard Report Builder or Reporting Services courses).

We don't have any dates scheduled for this course, but we may well consider adding them - it's always worth asking.

Alternatively, you could enquire about running the course in your office or even (if available) as a tailored online course.

Sample customer feedback

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts (note that some of these reviews may be for our online courses).

"Interactive, enthusiastic trainer. Great jokes."

Carrie-Anne Adams (Macquarie Energy Leasing)

"Thank you for delivering a fantastic course. "

Shahbaaz Khan (UP Global Sourcing (UK) Ltd)

"Our trainer was very friendly and delivered the course in a way that made it fun and enjoyable, but also easy to understand. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone looking to get into SQL."

Katie Horton (The Modern Milkman)

"The trainer's approach made me feel very comfortable and I gained confidence quickly in my abilities as I progressed through the course. Lots of practical exercises to reinforce what I thought I knew, and yet still lots of time to go out on tangents when necessary, Fantastic. Wish I could do it again! Very excited to apply what I've learned. I wanted a training provider that offered more of a personal touch really. Everyone learns differently and I didn't like the idea of attending a seminar style course. This was anything but that, very personal, focused and enjoyable. Thank you."

Puc Covelli (Integrate Media Limited)

"A very good trainer, who was good at explaining new topics and keeping us engaged; very friendly too. The main topics had been set by our company, but he was happy to go over some more esoteric things when we had time."
