    How to match similar words in Tableau

    Emma Jin

      Greetings!

       

      I encounter a problem about identifying similar strings in tableau. For example, suppose I want all the records that with similar value in column 1 and column 2, 'a cat', 'Cat' and 'cats' should be viewed as similar. However, in Tableau, I can only do exact match by creating a calculation field '[column 1]=[column 2]'. Is there a way to do that?

       

      Thanks!
