Calculate the % of a Category Type "A2" from the entire spreadsheet

New Contributor

Hello Professionals,


My question appears to be a complicated one, but I am hoping someone can provide me with a solution.


I am compiling a spreadsheet with different categories (i.e. name: "A2") in column D.


How do I find the % of all "A2's" in column D, for the entire spreadsheet?


For example, if there are twenty"A2" in column D, and the total number of items are 80, how do I produce a value of 25%?


Thanks in advance!

You can use




and format the cell with this formula as a percentage. If you want to exclude one or more header rows: let's say your data begin in row 4, and will never extend below row 1000.



Awesome Hans! Thank you!
