Cartesian Product from Table Visual

When I add a measure into a table that never returns blank the table becomes the cartesian product. I under that it's a side affect of the one to many join however how do you get around it? I have a model with a fact table joined to a dimension through a many-to- one relationship. I have a measure that returns either a column value or "N/A".

IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Registrations[ISubscription]) = "TRUE", SELECTEDVALUE(Registrations[SubscriptionEndDate]), "N/A")

 When I place it in the table I get the cartesian product but if I remove the false condition it just returns those rows that meet the TRUE condition. I'd like to be able to see both the rows that meet the true condition and N/A for all others.

@owjo1001 , this will have a left join in favor of dimension tables, that will show all values from dimension.Some time we need to control it back



calculate(IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Registrations[ISubscription]) = "TRUE", SELECTEDVALUE(Registrations[SubscriptionEndDate]), "N/A"), filter(Registrations, Registrations[Registrations] in selectedvalues(Registrations[Registrations])))



If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
