Switch dax measure with numbers format issue

Hi Experts


The following measure below works perfectly fine when I remove the formatting element from the dax. When I apply the formatting which I would like. It bring back all my customers including those with no data..


Slicer_CM_PF1 =
VAR Mth1 =
SELECTEDVALUE ( SelMth_Current[Month] )
VAR yr =
SELECTEDVALUE ( Year_Grp[Year] )
VAR Fcst1 =
SELECTEDVALUE ( SelMth_4[Actual] )
VAR Chn =
SELECTEDVALUE ( Channel_PL[Channel])
VAR Opt = 0
VAR MthVal =
SUM ( Customers_Profitability_Consolidation[Profit] ),
Customers_Profitability_Consolidation[Period] = Fcst1,
Customers_Profitability_Consolidation[Year] = yr,
Customers_Profitability_Consolidation[Channel] = Chn,
Customers_Profitability_Consolidation[Month] = Mth1
VAR MTDValue =
AVERAGE ( Customers_Profitability_Consolidation[Chkfmt] ),
1, FORMAT(MthVal, "#,##0.0;(#,##0.0%);-" ),
2, FORMAT(MthVal, "#,##0.0;(#,##0.0);-" ),
FORMAT(MthVal, "#,##0.0;(#,##0.0);-" )

@Cloud11 , better to use calculation groups for this


Using format will convert it into string
