don't calculate overall sum for a special column

Hello everyone,
I have a basic visualized matrix with a basic SUM([Column]) as a column in the table. The table has a inner filter and I just use "SUM" for my calculation because it needs an aggregation to be able to show the result. So the inner Filter then splits every value in the right way. The problem is tho that it shows an overall sum for this column in this table which makes no sense for this case. But I still have another column in this table where I need the overall sum, thats why I cant disable the overall sum in the format settings.

Is there a way to edit my measure SUM([Column]) so it doesn't show the overall SUM of this specific column? I'd like just a blank spot instead.

Measure =
     ISINSCOPE(Table[Column]),[Sum of Sale],0)

Hi @sistancy,

The solution depends on your precise case, I guess.

If, for example, the filiter in your case is applied to the column which is not used in the row section of your matrix, you can apply a solution like the one on the screenshot below.
