Decimal places showing in Matrix

I created a slicer from my Year column with a whole number data type and the slicer is allowing decimals to be shown for years...which is absurd. My ultimate goal is to be able to have a slicer where i can scroll through months over about ten years. 

 

Here's a picture for reference of what I am currently getting:

Hi @hhammeren,

 

Please try change Month's data type to Whole Number and Format to Whole Number. In case you want to show all of months of years, you could add new column with format: YearMonth (Year*100 + Month) as Whole Number

Hi @hhammeren,

 

So far, I think no there is slicer option for numeric, maybe you could add this idea to the ideas forum to allow users setup label/value for slicer control
