Re: Error-The export service is not available

Hi @Lily,


Could you please share a bit more about the error message when exporting data from CDS?


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. The screenshot as below:Test1.gif



The user @cperia has faced same issue with you, please check the response within the following thread:


In addition, please take a try with the "Open in Excel" option within your CDS, then check if the issue is solved on your side. The screenshot as below:3.JPG

Re: Error-The export service is not available

Thanks for your response.
I can't also import data, I get the same error:
"The export / import service is not available: connection set initialization failed for project ____. Error: not found"
I'm using this guide:

I also tried to "open in Excel", in this case I got an empty table...

I hope you could help me with this.
Thank you!

Hello @Lily,


Are you using the PowerApps Community plan? I get a "The export is not available" when using the PowerApp Community plan ("Developer" environment).
