about columns in DimDate in data-model view of power bi desktop

Hello There,

I am trying to do some hands-on learning work to create data models in power bi; I imported 'DimDate', 'DimProduct', 'DimProductCategory', 'DimProductSubCategory', 'FactInternetSales' tables. With an objective to create hierarchy in DimDate table with columns 'Year', 'Quarter', 'Month' and etc, I tried to navigate to fields under DimDate table in 'Model' view of Power BI Desktop.

I couldn't find individual columns as I am expecting, rather there are aggregated columns of 'year', 'Quarter', 'Semester' and etc; my concern is why there are no non-aggregated columns relevant to 'year', 'quarter', 'semester, and etc. I did similar kind of modelling operations in SSAS-Tabular mode and now trying to accomplish similar and extended data modelling operations in Power BI desktop.

would anyone please me understand the scenario? Thank you for giving your valuable time. Please find the screenshot attached to this post.

In the chart, the number type data is aggregated by default. You can click the field in the chart to modify the aggregation. You can also modify the data type.

@arunaramana , Not very clear. Numeric columns are by default show as Aggregated or summarized.  But they can be used as not summarized in a visual.
