Power BI Slicer search in table visual

If we have a lot of text in a table visual in Power BI and want to search to find all texts with a specific character in them, then we can use a slicer to solve this. For this we have to follow these steps:

Step-1:

Create a table and slicer visual on Power BI. Here we take two charts. One is a table chart, that showing the product and its profit, and another one is a slicer visual that showing products.

Step-2:

When we put any character in the search box, it will be filtered and show value in a slicer. For example, here we enter ‘a’, then the chart will show only those data having ‘a’.
