Bridge Slicer not slicing 2nd table

Hello all,


I have seen many posts that seem to be my use case, but the solutions are not working for me.  


Using solution from this post:


The visual is a card, representing a distinct count of a different Facts2 [field2] that should change based on slicer selection filtering Facts2[field1] .


I have two facts tables, with many same fields and 1 Bridge table with a common field that I want to use as a slicer.  The only relationship between the facts tables is a 1 to Many, single direction.  And the bridge table to each of the facts table, 1 to many 1 direction.  The slicer is only slicing 1 of the tables not both.


I have seen where the solution is to create a measure that is used as a visual filter where the filter is set to 1.  1 represents the value on facts table row when the field value matches selected value.


Measure 1 to capture selected value from Facts2 : 


SlcCareerTrack = SELECTEDVALUE('Slicer'[Value])
Measure 2 in table to return 1 when selected Value from slicer matches field value in table:
SelCareerTrack =
var _sel = [SlcCareerTrack]
var _CarTrk = MAX(Facts2[Career Track]
Issue 1 - "var _sel = [SlcCareerTrack]" - This is supposed to reference the (facts2)[field] but it will only accept measures or functions.  It will not accept (facts table)[field]?? -   RESOLVED - Is looking for the value in Measure 1 NOT Facts table
Issue 2 - The visual is a card, representing a distinct count of field that should change based on slicer selection.  When applying the visual filter Measure2 'is 1' - The filter will not allow me to modify the 'is'.  I cannot change the operator nor select the filter options at all.  Its like its frozen. RESOLVED!!! - I changed the card to a table and added the Facts2[Field] which allowed me to configure the filter and then change back to a card!!
Issue 3 - When putting this in a table to see the actual data - The Slicer selected value assigns to all rows, which gives them an automatic 1??   RESOLVED.  Value 1 assigns appropriately based on slicer selection with resolution on issue 1




Please help??
