I would Change the measure aggregate Function to one of the semi additive Measures. ("LastChild" or "LastNonEmpty") This will prevent  the measure from adding across the time dimension but it will add across all other dimensions.  I think this is ther functionality you are looking for. This can be done in the properties of the measure.

in my measure group I have all the measures.

Check the you Time/Calendar Dimension properties. The type properties must be set to "Time" for a semi-additive dimension to work properly.
