How to prevent SUM or MAX measure result from changing by user clicks on items

I have a smart narrative card with text and a measure that counts the total amount from different categories of revenue.


When a user clicks on one of the categories, that total amount gets changed to count only that one category.


Both the total and the categories pull data from the same column. Their formatting is specified by the formula.


How do I stop the total from changing no matter what the user clicks on. I tried with SUM and MAX and the behavior is the same.

@splambo , if the total amount is on a separate card. You can have measure like


calculate(Sum(Table[Value]), all())

Thank you! I did not fully explain my situation, which is why your suggestion is on the right track but does not prevent a user click from changing that number.

Here is what my data table looks like and the number I want to display. I want to display:


The value of 'Municipal GDP Total' where 'GDP Domain' is "Culture Total", and this should be affected by my 'City' Slicer.
