Visual Problem

I have a table like this, that has been unpivoted in power query. The 3 of the 4 custom columns to identify the main column work perfectly, but not a certain one despite having the same code.

 

AttributeValueIF containsstringexact FruitIf containsstringexact Veg
Fruit - Apple510
Veg - Carrot 301

 

So column "fruit" and "veg" are both used to identify the category of Attribute IF(CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(TABLE[Attribute],"fruit"),1,0)

When i then make a visual with Veg as a filter, the table shows the same value for each Veg. Yet when I make the same visual using Fruit as a filter the visual properly calculate the sum/avg of each fruit.

 

Can someone please explain why it works for one custom column but not another?

 

Even if I combine all the if conditional identifies into a single column, the visual is adjust correctly for every field except for that veg field.

To give you better information, what are you looking for? I feel my problem is described perfectly. I made a column to use as a filter and it is not working, yet works for other similar columns.
