Get Text from Text Zone to aggregate in another one

Hi,

 

My customer would like to have a text zone that would aggregate what is written in other text zones throughout the report.

Text zone here are used as comment zone that the user can customize.

Is it possible to do that in PowerBI or in DAX ?

 

If it's not I'll have to consider asking him to write his comments in an externe file (Word, Excel) to import them in Power BI and generate the comments, but that I don't want to do that...

 

Thanks for your help,

Hi @Gavroche97 

If you want to enter text, you can use TextBox, which allows you to enter text at design time.

If this is not the effect you want, can you provide some images or examples of what you want to achieve?

The end result would be a text box (or something that would allow the user to enter text) in several pages, and in a final page, the comments that were entered in all text boxes in the report would be aggregated in one text area. 
Let's say I have 3 pages A, B and C

 

If a text box in A contains "Hello" and a text box in B contains "World", then the text box in C would contains "Hello World"
