  1. I have built a paginated report with a Power BI Dataset as a datasource and published in a PPU workspace. I have set the subscription to export as Excel but I get a timeout error as below.

    error”: {
    “code”: “PaginatedReportTimeoutError”,
    “message”: “RootActivityId(78ddc113-3b6f-4fee-b075-30b51785b4df): The export has timed out”,
    “details”: []

    Error Details
    RootActivityId(78ddc113-3b6f-4fee-b075-30b51785b4df): The export has timed out

    Is there a way to bypass the timeout parameter ? I tried looking to edit any of the configuration files but there are a lot of application extension files (.dll) so wasn’t sure how to do it. I have numerous reports and this seems to be an issue with just this particular report.

    Thanks in advance!!!

  2. Derek, you make a very good point and I appreciate your expertise on this. This may not have been clear but I was being sarcastic. This was more for entertainment value and I really didn’t expect to find any correlation about between UFO sightings and drug use.

  3. One word of warning from a statistician… You should not look for any meaningful correlation between two sets of data that are completely unrelated. If you had measures taken on THE SAME individuals with respect to ‘Have I seen/reported a UFO?’ and ‘Have I taken drugs in the past?’, then you could look for correlation and your investigation would very much be valid from the point of view of statistical methodology. Of course, you can always ask about two time series being correlated (as in your case) but the value of such an investigation would be rather dubious and an interpretation of any outcome would be difficult, to say the least.

  4. I hope to have more content added in the coming weeks. I’ve been doing a lot of interesting work with Power BI and I love it!
