Conditional formatting sentences If they consist words from another column

Hi guys,

 

I have a column full of sentences [SENTENCES] and I also have a column with words [WORDS].

I would like to highlight the words in the sentences with yellow background (or If it doesnt work at least the sentences, so the whole cell) If they consist any of the words from the WORDS column.

 

Does anyone has a solution for that?

I know that it is possible with HTML visualizations, but I would like to do It without that If that's possible.

 

Thank you for your answer in advance!

@PowerDinosaur , You can have a measure like this and can use that in conditional formatting using field values option

measure =

vat _1 = countx(filter(Table, containsstring(Table[Sentence],[Word])),[Sentence])

return

if(not(Isblank(_1)) ,"Yellow", Blank())

Dear @amitchandak thank you for your kind help!

I had to modify It a bit to make it work, but it works nicely! (i had to use the values function before the Table name).

However I have a problem which can become quite big. I used this on a sample, which includes only 3 sentences, however it took 11 seconds to load. This measure makes 5-6 seconds of the load time. In production we have to use this usually with about 1500 sentences, but sometimes with 5000. Do you have any idea how can we make this process quite quicker?

 

Thank you in advance!
