I have a table with the columns Id(int), Units(int), ItemId(int), MyText(string)
I want to find all "Units" with itemId=2 and add them all together. Then I want to find how many percent the Units in each row is of the total number and return as "UnitsPercentage".  How do I do that?

Example:
Row1:  Id=1, Units=2, ItemId=2, MyText="Blue"
Row2:  Id=2, Units=4, ItemId=2, MyText="Green"
Row3:  Id=3, Units=3, ItemId=2, MyText="Yellow"
Row4:  Id=4, Units=1, ItemId=2, MyText="Red"

Return:
Id=1, UnitsPercentage="20"
Id=2, UnitsPercentage="40"
Id=3, UnitsPercentage="30"
Id=4, UnitsPercentage="10"
