Search in text and count rows

Hello, hoping someone can help with this. I am counting how many times each "search term" in Table 1 appears in "phrases" in Table 2. It's working using this measure:

Search Word Measure = 
VAR CurrWord =
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table 1'[Search Term] )
RETURN
COUNTROWS (
    CALCULATETABLE (
        VALUES ( 'Table 2'[Phrase]), 
        FILTER ( 'Table 2'
        , SEARCH ( CurrWord, 'Table 2'[Phrase], 1, -1 ) > 0 ) ))

 

 

Table 1

TermSearch Term
apple1apple 1
apple1apple1
apple1apple one
apple2apple 2
apple2apple2
apple2apple two

 

Table 2 

Phrase
this phrase is about apple 1
this phrase is about apple1
this phrase is about apple two

 

So in this case, it would show the following in table visual:

Search TermSearch Word Measure
apple 11
apple11
apple two2

 

But I want to achieve is this  in table visual:

TermSearch Word Measure
apple12
apple22

 

 

Any ideas are appreciated! Smiley Happy

Re: Search in text and count rows

Hi @badger123,

 

Based on your information, I have a little confused about your scenario.

 

I have test with your data sample and measure, but my output is not as the same as yours.

In addition, if I understand your scenario correctly that your desired output should be like below based on your data sample, because there is only three rows in table 2.

If I understand your logic correctly, you could follow the steps below.

 

1. GO to Query Editor, duplicate the column Phrase in table 2 and split this column then you will get the output below.

Then remove the column don't need and apply and close.

 

2. Go to Data view, create a calculated column for table 1 with the formula below.

Column = LOOKUPVALUE(Table2[Phrase term],Table2[Phrase term],'Table1'[Search Term])

3. Create the measure

 

Measure = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Column]),ALLEXCEPT(Table1,'Table1'[Term]))

More details, please refer to this attachment.

 

If you still need help, please describe your logic in more details so that we could  help further on it.

Re: Search in text and count rows

Hi @badger123 ,

 

By my tests, you could create another measure like below to get your desired output based on your pbix.

 

 

Measure = SUMX('Searches','Searches'[Search Word Measure])

Here is the output.

Re: Search in text and count rows

Hi @v-piga-msft 

 

Thanks so mcuh for taking the time to help, but that's not quite what I had in mind. Let me explain in a bit more detail what I'm trying to achieve as it wasn't clear before... 

 

I've created this file with a bit more dummy data showing my current method and explaining my desired output: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nx8jnedctjdrxwq/Search%20in%20text%20and%20count%20rows%20%281%29.pbix?dl=...
