FORMAT not working

Hi. This is my first post so apologies in advance if I breach any rules or etiquette.
I am trying to format a simple measure as a percentage but it isn't working. The measure is defined as:

 

1-(COUNTBLANK(Planning[Actual_ManagementResponses])/[Total])

 

where Total is another measure that counts all the columns in the [Planning] table. The measure works fine, shows up on a bar chart, but when I add:

 

FORMAT(1-(COUNTBLANK(Planning[Actual_ManagementResponses])/[Total]),"Percent")

 

it breaks; the bar on a bar chart disappears.

I'm using the version: 2.39.4526.362 64-bit (September 2016). Thank you.

Re: FORMAT not working

Maybe nothing to do with it but I've just realised the way I've defined these measures isn't the most efficient..

 

I think I should just count the blanks and then as the column as a category, otherwise on a clustered bar chart, they'll all be next to each other..
