I have three columns where column C can contain "multiple" values like "John, Pete" instead of just "John" or "Pete". See table below...

Is it possible in some way to make the slicer for Column C just show the unique values "John", "Pete", "George", instead of the combined ones like "George, John"?



   A                B                 C
Red                 2               John, Pete
Green           3                     Pete
Blue                 4              George, John
