Keywords Lookup - DirectQuery

I have a table of keywords and want to search the Expenses[Description] column and return results either in a column or filtered table of all rows containing the keyword.

This calculated column works great in my Sample data, but my live data is Direct Query and I cannot add this column.  Any thoughts on making it work with Direct Query?



Filter =
VAR Keywords =
    FIRSTNONBLANK (FILTER (VALUES ( 'Table'[Keywords] ), SEARCH ( 'Table'[Keywords], Expenses[Description], 1, 0 )),1)
RETURN IF ( NOT ( ISBLANK ( Keywords ) ), Keywords, "" )

@ssbagley , Create a measure like

maxx(filter('Table', SEARCH ( 'Table'[Keywords], Expenses[Description], 1, 0 )>0), 'Table'[Keywords] )


plot with Keywords


Countx(filter('Table', SEARCH ( 'Table'[Keywords], Expenses[Description], 1, 0 )>0), 'Table'[Keywords] )
