Direct Query - Visual cannot be displayed and search oddity
I am encountering the following error only when using the search functionality on one of my drop-down slicers:
I have not made any modeling changes to my query as that is not supported by direct query and instead only by import. This is all raw data coming out of SQL. The only thing I DID add was a calculated column to concatenate two string values. This affects one where the data is stored as text even though all characters are numbers. The other drop-downs can't perform search functionality.
If I have items in the drop-down and then proceed to type in the first few characters of one of those that I KNOW exist, it comes up blank. I have to type the entire thing before seeing it show up in the results.
I verified that the issue exists in another report as well. It's a very simple report with just one drop-down and in that drop-down I can't filter on part of the string (an item description) but can key in the concatenated end of the string (item number). This seems to be an issue with Power BI and not just one of my reports.
