Power BI copy over data into pbix file


I have been sent a Power BI pbix file where I have no connection to the database where the datasets come from. Is there a way for the sender or me to rather make a copy of the data files or part of them so that I don't need access to the data source. Also can I look at the dashboard without the data?

When you publish a report it will automatically create 2 files "the report" and "the dataset". When exporting in pbix you'll need both files and you'll need to reset the datasource in the report to the offline dataset file.

Hi Cedric. Thanks. Is there an easy way to do this?
