Strange Date filter behavior


I have this model


And this measure



Overall = 
VAR DoneIssues = CALCULATE(SUM(Issues[Weight]), Issues[Status] == "Done")
VAR Total = CALCULATE(SUM(Issues[Weight]), Issues[Status] <> "Cancelled")
VAR Ratio = DIVIDE(DoneIssues, Total)
IF(ISBLANK(Ratio), 0, Ratio)


When I use this measure in a Table visual it works fine but it returns entries for all the Epics registers, even those that do not relate to the year. Strange and not what I want. Although the value of the Measure is right. 

"Wrong" behavior (highlighted rows doesn't belong to selected Year) :



If I use a Date field belonging to the Epic table in a Filter slicer, it works fine and as expected. The Epics that do not belong to the date just don't appear in the table. 

This behavior is fine, as you can see the registers belonging to 2021 do not appear.  

Can you, please, help me to understand this behavior and how can I filter properly by the Date table?

Thanks in advance

@PowerBoy , Please make Year to Epics join 1-M and then check .


Also try meausre like


Overall = 
VAR DoneIssues = CALCULATE(SUM(Issues[Weight]),filter(Issues, Issues[Status] == "Done"))
VAR Total = CALCULATE(SUM(Issues[Weight]), filter(Issues,Issues[Status] <> "Cancelled"))
VAR Ratio = DIVIDE(DoneIssues, Total)
IF(ISBLANK(Ratio), 0, Ratio)

Hello @amitchandak, thanks for your answer. 

I tried the changes you mentioned but the behavior is the same. 
Anyways, I believe that the expanded Issues table contains the attributes of Date table regardless if the relationship is 1:1 or 1:*.  If it was a FILTER(Issues,... ) thing the behavior would have been wrong when filtering by Epics[Date]. 

Obviously if I remove the IF statement in my measure, it returns BLANK and the row disappears, but that is not the real solution. 

I dont know what could be happening. More opinions are appreciated.
