i've got the following percentage calculation, but need to format the % to 'example 4.5%'. Also account for null values.

([Measures].[Current Bed Count]/[Measures].[Current Available Bed Count])

Thanks.

How does this go for the formatting?

([Measures].[Current Bed Count]/[Measures].[Current Available Bed Count]),
format_string = '0.00%'

How does this go for Null in the numerator and formatting?

IIF(ISEMPTY([Measures].[Current Bed Count],0)/([Measures].[Current Available Bed Count]),FORMAT_STRING = "PERCENT"
