Filter for multiple values in a cell

Let's say I have a table like this. I want to be able to find "Which store sells both Book and Chair" for example.

I'm thinking a slicer where I can search for 'book' and 'chair' and the table will adjust and give the answer.

 

Any idea how to achieve this? Thanks.

Hi @my_microsoftacc ,

 

According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1) My test data is the same as yours.

(2) We can create a table.

Products = 
FILTER(
    DISTINCT(
        SELECTCOLUMNS(
            GENERATE(
                Stores,
                VAR ProductsList = 
                    ADDCOLUMNS(
                        GENERATESERIES(1, MAXX(Stores, LEN([Products]) - LEN(SUBSTITUTE([Products], ",", "")) + 1)),
                        "Product", TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE([Products], ",", REPT(" ", 100)), ([Value] - 1) * 100 + 1, 100))
                    )
                RETURN ProductsList
            ),
            "Product", [Product]
        )
    ),[Product]<>BLANK())

(3)We can create a measure. 

Flag = IF(COUNTROWS(FILTER(VALUES(Products[Product]),CONTAINSSTRING(SELECTEDVALUE(Stores[Products]),[Product])))=COUNTROWS(VALUES(Products[Product])),1,0)

(4) Then the result is as follows.

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. Thank you.

Hi @my_microsoftacc ,

 

Update the measure.

Flag = IF(OR(COUNTROWS(FILTER(VALUES(Products[Product]),CONTAINSSTRING(SELECTEDVALUE(Stores[Products]),[Product])))=COUNTROWS(VALUES(Products[Product])),ISFILTERED('Products'[Product])=FALSE()),1,0)

It worked! Thanks a lot. Just another question, right now if nothing is selected in the table, the original table is empty. So how can I adjust the measure so that if nothing is selected, the whole table shows?

@my_microsoftacc , One is a split column by delimiter in power bi or split it in dim

Thanks for replying @amitchandak . I already know about this but it is not exactly what I'm looking for.

What you suggested works as an "or" search, so for example: store sells book or chair. The result is Store A, B and C.

But I want to have an "and" search. So in that case, store sells both book and chair, the result is only store A.
