Hierarchy Slicer - Return Field Values not Sum


following is the problem: I would like to display field values in a visual card through the usage of a hierarchy slicer.
However, when picking a value from the slicer, the results presented in the visual card is the SUM of all sub hierarchies, not the field value associated with the selected value.

Example Hierarchy Slicer Setup
Dept. Group
   Dept A
   Dept B

Example Table
Dept. Group   100
Dept A             50
Dept B             50

If I click on the Slicer Dept. Group the return value is 200, but the desired outcome is 100. There is no option to turn off the sum function the visual card. 

Also, the format of the values needs to stay numbers and not converted into text.

Thanks for any tips!

I suspect your table structure is the problem. If you restructure your table to then I think you will get what you're looking for... more details below



Dept. Group

Dept A50
Dept. GroupDept B50


Create a hierarchy on Group and Dept and use that in your slicer.

Create a measure to sum the amount and put that in your card.
