Intro to Paginated Reports (1 of 2)

Gain technical knowledge on pulling data in from Power BI into Paginated Reports

An outline of this training course

Power BI is an amazing tool in managing data, modelling data, creating insights and visualization of information. However, there may be times when we are asked to create a report on specific elements of our data that expands to more than one page. Or we may need to capture a copy of a report at a specific date/time for legal / business reasons that cannot be changed. This is where paginated reports are incredibly useful.

Paginated reports allow pixel perfect formatting of our data to fit into a visualisation that can expand over many pages, thus sharing or printing of a full report becomes possible. They allow us to plan the layout of the pages and ensure that all information is visible.

In this course, Sue Bayes, a certified Microsoft Data Analyst Associate with extensive experience in creating paginated reports, will help you pull data from Power BI into Paginated Reports. You will gain an overall understanding of the basics of how Paginated Reports work and be able to create basics Reports with formatting and print as pdfs. As an analyst, you will be able to use another reporting tool to give insights into your analysis that can be distributed and printed / formatted accordingly.
