If we break the link to the data, the PivotTable will no longer be interactive and won’t support expand/collapse, filtering, or sorting. Copy/Paste into Paint or any other graphics program will preserve an exact picture of the PivotTable with all formatting. In any event, this item isn’t likely to be addressed soon.Rene Noel Cruz supported this idea ·

Why can't Excel do this from within Excel if:
In SSRS, i can connect to a SSAS Tabular Model, create a pivot table and save the report to Excel with the link disconnected to the data source (report now has static data), the table format intact and the row drill down still working.
