How to count the number of boolean "1" based on criteria?

Hi, I have two tables; table 1 and table 2.

 

I am trying to count the number of rows containing "1" on the shift count column from table 1 on table 2's total shifts column BASED on staff's name in table 2's staff column.

 

Here is table 1 and Total Shifts column shows the outcome that I want from the DAX expression:

StaffTotal Shifts
Name12
Name21

 

Here is table 2:

StaffShift Count
Name11
Name20
Name10
Name21
Name11

 

The DAX expressions that im using are Counta and Filter. It did not work and I get an error message "Dax Comparison operations do not support comparing values of type Integer with values of type Text. Consider using the VALUE or FORMAT function to convert one of the values":

 

Please note, shift count column's data type is whole number.

 

Total Shift =
CALCULATE(
    COUNTA('Table 2'[Shift Count]),
            (FILTER(ALL('Table 2'),
            'Table 2'[Shift Count] = 'Table 1'[Staff])
            )
)

Hi @Anonymous 

Try this

Total Shift =
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Table 2'[Shift Count]),
            (FILTER(ALL('Table 2'),
            'Table 2'[Staff] = 'Table 1'[Staff])
            )
)

Please mark the question solved when done and consider giving kudos if posts are helpful.

Even better is this:

 

Total Shift = // calculated column in Table 1
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Table 2'[Shift Count]),
    'Table 2'[Staff] = SELECTEDVALUE( 'Table 1'[Staff] )
)
