You can export your pivot tables to Excel (XLSX). When you export a pivot table to Excel, only the displayed (filtered) data is exported according to the currently selected filters and your pivot table’s values and layout structure are exported.

The example below shows a pivot table exported to Excel versus CSV:



Exporting to Excel maintains your pivot’s layout and structure, and values such as sub-totals, which are not maintained when you export a pivot table to CSV.

To export a widget to Excel:

  • In Edit mode, click on the download icon, and select Download Excel File.

Exporting to Excel via the REST API

In addition to exporting to Excel via the Sisense Web Application, you can export binary content via the Sisense REST API through the POST /engine/excelExport endpoint. You can then convert this content to an Excel file (.xlsx).

Note: This endpoint is not available from Sisense’s interactive REST API. For more information about the endpoint, see the POST /engine/excelExport in Version 1.0 of the REST API.
