Excel Slicer that Utilizes Text Filters functions such as "Contains"?

Last Modified: 2016-02-11
Hi Experts,
I'm using an OLAP Slicer connected to PowerPivot in Excel 2013 and would like to know if there is a way to to do the following with the slicer without resorting to an ActiveX ListBox VBA Solution.

1. Have custom sliceritems in the Slicer as opposed to representing all of the unique values in the column of data
2. Have the Slicer function on the text filtering functionality of "contains"

I am trying to get around a problem where I would have to concatenate values across 6 columns of repeating data and results in some 100 possible concatenated sliceritems permutations.
