If I understand your question when you link the tables together (using the active link) then total number of marks in the viz changes - - that is the expected action -
No the second part is that the change does not meet you expectation - Can't be specific without looking at the data but the number of marks will be dependent on the Filtered view in the viz after you connect or disconnect the link - the filters will still apply

Thanks Jim for your quick response. Your understanding is correct. The count in the viz is changing and the final count i am getting is not accurate. I am not doing any filter that will make the count change. The moment i click on the active icon, the number changes.
I have a "VP Name" as common in Data Source A and Data Source B which means automatically tableau creates a relation because of the common name in 2 data sets. When i blend those 2 fields, then ideally the number should still remain the same (which is not happening) unless i apply the filter of seeing the data only for a particular VP.
Any help will be appreciated.
If anyone can help with my question, i would appreciate it.
