What is Power BI Report Builder?


Power BI report builder is a tool used to create a paginated report and publish it to the Power BI services. This report can then be shared with anyone. You can see the result prior to publishing, and from that point onward, the processor will do all the jobs according to your detail.
At the point when you plan a paginated report, you're making a report definition that indicates what information to recover, where to get it, and how to show it. At the point when you run the report, the report processor takes the report definition you have indicated, recovers the information, and consolidates it with the report design to create the report. You review your report in Report Builder. At that point, distribute your report to the Power BI help.

Why we need Power BI Report Builder

At first, everybody is confused between a Power BI report and a paginated report. Most likely, you are confused about utilizing a report and asking why you need a paginated one. We might want to clarify this utilizing a straightforward model. In the event that you have a Power BI report with numerous tables in it, you will most likely have to look over the page to see the total one. While printing, the lone piece of the report that is printed is the one that you can see. You can't print the entire report utilizing the Power BI work area, and this is the place where the job of the Power BI report developer becomes an integral factor. Each paginated report made utilizing the reporting manufacturer is imprinted in full, including all the substance on your report with one order.
