How can I copy Excel 2013 PowerView sheet to for example PowerPoint slide?

Or if I try to export it to pdf-file I get a message in pdf:

"Power View can only print one sheet at a time.
 Please switch to the desired sheet and try again."

I have only one sheet in my workbook.

I could use a solution or workaround.

From what I can see, there is not an option to export a Power View visualization from within Excel 2013. When you select the "Save As" menu option, there are numerous formats, but PowerPoint is not one of them.

One way I can think of to get the Power View visualization into a PDF is to use a "PDF Printer" program, which acts as a system printer and can convert anything you can print into a PDF. There are a number of freeware and shareware PDF Printer softwares available for testing.

Not sure what you you are really asking; how to get Power View data to PowerPoint or a PDF file.

Either way, it would appear you can not copy them directly to a PDF. As far as I can tell, you need to the File menu and Export to PowerPoint first. From there you can edit the presentation as desired, then the presentation can be saved it to a PDF.

Either way would be nice. PowerPoint or PDF. Point is to get it somewhere. Your source is referring to PowerView on Sharepoint. I'm talking about PowerView on Excel 2013. – Henri Dec 21 '12 at 19:39
Do you even have the option to export to PowerPoint? – CharlieRB Dec 21 '12 at 20:14

You can export from Sharepoint's Power View to Powerpoint, and You can export from Excel's Power View to PDF.

Probably a short procedure describing the export would be useful here. – pabouk Oct 30 '13 at 7:29
