Paginated Reports for Power BI

Classroom training course - online version also available

£695 + VAT for most venues (£795 + 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).
