Word Search Slicer?

Say I have a chart like so:

 

IDDescription
888This is BLUE
150This is dark BLUE
850This is light GREEN
422This is RED
397This is really BLUE
431This tends to be YELLOW
214This seems like it's GREEN
272This is product RED
532This had the color RED

 

I need to make a bar chart that will show a count of how many descriptions have the word "BLUE", "GREEN", "RED", "YELLOW". So the count should end up like so: Blue = 3, Green = 2, Red = 3, Yellow = 1

 

How can I achieve this?

 

This would be a live feed data so every day it needs to refresh whatever calculation it is making.

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Ok well her is one example of the way you can solve it.

 

1. create a table with all your keywords

2 cross join that table to your table you want to search

3 create an if statement that returns the colour value of the description if it contains a keyword

4 remove all other rows.

 

see example attached.

so must it find any of the words or be an exact match ie you want to know exactly how many are blue or, you want to know how many have any of those colours?

Any description that contains that word, whether it used to be or is lightly that color, should come up in the filter. So I guess I should have added an expected count. It should come up as Blue = 3, Green = 2, Red = 3, Yellow = 1

and one last question, is this question reflective of your real data or do you have bigger volumes of what you are searching for, and how big is your data?

Real data has about 30 columns and 4k rows

Ok well her is one example of the way you can solve it.

 

1. create a table with all your keywords

2 cross join that table to your table you want to search

3 create an if statement that returns the colour value of the description if it contains a keyword

4 remove all other rows.
