Power bi Tiles add-in Office

Few week ago i have spoke about a workaround to create a complete pdf from power bi. Today i found a new and more interesting solution .

On this site you found a new add-in that allow you to embed PowerBI visualizations inside an Office Document, for example a PowerPoint presentation. For now it’s supporde by:

  • Excel 2013 Service Pack 1 or newer
  • Excel Online
  • PowerPoint 2013 Service Pack  or newer
  • PowerPoint Online
  • Access Online

it’s Very simple to use:

  1. Open an Office Program, in our case Powerpoint
  2. Go to the “Insert “Tab adn select Store Button

After That the app create a ne object. Frome the object you can :

  • Select from power BI and you can see your power bi Report ( from your subscrition office 365)
  • Select Publich Dashboard to insert a specific link

If select from power bi you have this situation:

Filter and object connection works! a very simple way to create a dynamic presentation of your data. REquire internet connection, but works Great!




ssisproject.ispac Loading Error

Sometimes when a SSIS package on  visual studio on debug mode crash after that we have this error:


ispac file in use by other proces

System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file ‘c:\folder\ssisproject.ispac’ because it is being used by another process.
at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
at System.IO.File.Delete(String path)
at Microsoft.DataTransformationServices.Project.DataTransformationsProjectBuilder.IncrementalBuildThroughObj(IOutputWindow outputWindow)
at Microsoft.DataTransformationServices.Project.DataTransformationsProjectBuilder.BuildIncremental(IOutputWindow outputWindow)

To resolve this problem you have to :

  1. Open task manager
  2. Finf operation with these names:
    1. DtsDebugHost.exe
    2. SSIS DEbug Host
    3. SSIS DEbug
  3. Kill them

This happens when SSDT/Visual Studio crashes during runtime. If you kill SSDT then the SSIS Debug Host will still be active locking the ISPAC file.
