Export reports to Microsoft Office PowerPoint

There is another cool feature that you can use with Power View reports created in SharePoint: you can export the reports to PowerPoint (note that this does not work with reports created in Excel). When exporting, each view in Power View becomes a separate Silverlight control in its own PowerPoint slide. To export and view within PowerPoint, follow these steps:

  1. Save the Power View report as you can't export an unsaved report.

  2. Click on Export to PowerPoint in the File menu (see the following screenshot).
