How to stop suming up of integer columns in a dimension


  I have 2 dimensions (year and product ) and a fact. Inside product dim, I have a rating column for each product.

In my dashboard, I have year as a slicer and I am adding rating as a card.

Though I apply year based slicer, my rating gets rolled up. Why does this happen; even if I use a slicer on year? How to avoid this behavior?

ps: I  kept the slicers as cascaded by adding a measure inside the filters (by checking with fact table for blank or not).

@amitchandak .. Any inputs on the previous comments is really helpful.    

      On a side note, I believe I need to do as below (as dimensions are not related except through fact) based on comments at 5:37 from

SUM(Product[RATING]), Fact)

Thank you @amitchandak for the reply.

But why I need to do that? Why my slicer filters are not taking care not to sum the other rows (which are not applicable by the slicer)? Sorry that I am a novice in this.

@PWRBI_USER1 , Click on the rating column and in the column tool mark it as don't summarize
