Power BI WordCloud content in table?

In Power BI, once a word Cloud has been created, is there a way to view that same word cloud as either a bar chart or table to see a list of the words and associated quantities that are used to create the word cloud?

Just to revive this as it sounds similar/the same as a question I have, if i have the below word cloud, is there a way to convert the below info into a table to show a count of each word. for example:

shall 100

know 75

lord 50

We have a rather large spreadsheet (15K rows) with a column "Reason for Retention" containing free form text.

We wanted to see if there were common expressions or reasons for different categories of the data. 

While the wordcloud gives the "first" word only and we have tried to remove many "noise" words, we still can't find any meaningful insight of "Reasons for Retention" and it is hartd to distinguish size of words for frequency.

We thought if we could see a bar chart, we could scroll down.

We have used "Show as a table" from the ... ellipses on the word cloud - but again this did not help.


We may be going about this incorrectly, so absolutely open to suggestions 🤓






I'm sorry, it's hard for me to imagine your problem out of thin air if you didn't provide any sample...

Thankyou for replying @amitchandak .

I am very new to Power BI - could you please explain the steps involved of how I can get the keywords that are extracted from the word cloud and list them in a table  or bar chart so that I can see all of the keywords extracted and their corresponding frequency.

Hi, @AF_Archives 


I'm not quite sure about your needs, what's the logic for extracting keywords? You may need to create a distinct table column as slicer to filter the field you want to extract first, then create a measure to filter the result you want.

If you can share some sample data and your desired result, we can help you soon.
