How split column to show in slicer and filter on contains

I am importing calendar data from Microsoft Exchange.

The "DisplayTo" field is of the following form:

 

  UserName1;Username2;UserName3

 

First Problem:

I want to display the individual users names inside a slicer like this:

  UserName1

  UserName2

  UserName3

 

Second Problem:

I want to filter the calendar rows to just those which contain values selected in the slicer in the "DisplayTo" column. I cannot determine how to make the "contains" filter do anything except literal text. Is it possible to make a "contains" filter refer to a slicer value?

To solve your Second Problem you have to:

1) Select the top-down menu of the column

Hi WayneRoseberry,

 

to solve your First Problem you have to:

 

1) Select the columns

2) Do the transpose (columns become rows & rows become columns)

3) Split columns by delimiter (semicolon)

4) Redo the transpose

5) Replace the null values with the chosen values (adjusting the data type)
