Drill through issues



I'm trying to drill through on a bar chart to data on another page. I've enabled cross-report drill through on the Options > Settings menu, I've created the page I want to navigate to, but the visual on the other page is not filtering/drilling. When I go to Format > Edit interactions, "Apply drill down filters to" is grayed out and I can't change it. I've put the filters under the drill through tab on the other page where I have my "drill through" visual located. What am I doing wrong?

@swebb , Just check have you used any shape or image which is now above this visual? We add those border or background

I'm noticing something about my data model. I have a one to one relationship between my calendar table and my fact table purely to match the dates. I was having an issue with the dates from the beginning, the month column in my fact table would not convert to a date type. Do you think that has something to do with this? I'm able to get it to drill through from my detail page to the main page but not vice versa.
