To create a report in the Power BI Service, go through the following steps.
Log into https://powerbi.com and select your app workspace:
Click on Dataset and select a dataset. If you do not have one, create one. For example, to create a dataset from an Excel file, select + Create ->Dataset:
Under Files, select Get:
Select Local File.

- Quick Insights
- View Related
