Hello @vaishnaviudan and @marksn, there is an article with the solution using DAX: Removing Duplicates and Sorting Delimited Strings in Power BI .

This is brilliant! Thank you for sharing 🙂

is this still not possible in DAX?
I too have a calculated dax column that spits "abc; def; ghi; abc" and i want to get rid of duplicates (and at the same time sort it alphabetically).

Hi,

This is still not possible in DAX.  You will have to use Power Query to solve the question.

Hi @vaishnaviudan ,

As far as I know, this is currently not possible with DAX, you can try to implement it in Power Query.
