Handling customers with the same name in Power BI

This article explains how to show different customers with the same name in a Power BI report by using zero-width spaces, thus simplifying the presentation without adding visible characters to make the names unique.

Sometimes, we deal with cases where two or more entities of the same type have the same name. If we take the example of customers, the data model stores both the customer code and the customer name to correctly identify each customer. The customer code is what identifies each of the two customers with the same name as being unique.
