Drilldown 1000 row limit in PowerPivot or PowerBI.com Analyse in Excel

In a normal Excel pivot table when you double click on a cell you can see the build out of that number i.e. the underlying numbers/transactions making up the summary figure, which sometimes might be many thousand rows of data. However in PowerPivot or PowerBI.com Analyse in Excel the number of rows is limited to 1000 rows. Does anyone know how to override that 1000 number

It might be easier and more clear if I show you it rather than try to explain it

Thanks for any insights

Thanks Phil already tried it however that part is greyed out and therefore you cannot change the olap number. Or at least I haven't been able to. You'll see at about a minute 20 seconds of the video I uploaded me trying to do the same however the area is all grayed out.
