Use UNPIVOT.
More reference on UNPIVOT here:

;with CTE as (

select Property, Value

(select * from yourtable) o

unpivot (Value for property in (column1, column2, column3)) p

)

select 	Property, 

	Value, 

	(select sum(Value) from CTE) as total, 

	Value / (select sum(Value) from CTE) 

from CTE

works .. two more issues:

1. last column has all 0 (zeros)
2. what if i want to cluster columns? so what if i want to add column4,5 and 6 .. but the percentage and total should only affect the clustered columns.

For issue 1 see attached.
Issue 2, I'm not following, can you elaborate? It would also help If you provide some sample data and expected result

;with CTE as (

select Property, Value

from

(select * from yourtable) o

unpivot (Value for property in (column1, column2, column3)) p

)

select 	Property, 

	Value, 

	(select sum(Value) from CTE) as total, 

	Value * 1.00 / (select sum(Value) from CTE) 

from CTE

column 1 till 3 is category I

column 4 till 6 is category II

value of total must only be over category for column 1 till 3 ..

when i add column 4 till 6 in the current query .. i will get the total of column 1-6

column1,column2,column3,column4,column5,column6
10,20,30,1,2,3

column1, 10, 60, 0.2222
column2, 20, 60, 0.3333
column3, 30, 60, 0.5555
column4,  1, 6, %
column4,  2, 6, %
column4,  3, 6, %

So maybe something like this:
;with CTE as (

select Property, Value

from

(select * from yourtable) o

unpivot (Value for property in (column1, column2, column3)) p

)

select 	Property, 

	Value, 

	(select sum(Value) from CTE where property in ('column1', 'column2', 'column3')) as total, 

	CASE WHEN property in ('column1', 'column2', 'column3') then Value * 1.00 / (select sum(Value) from CTE where property in ('column1', 'column2', 'column3')) 

	else 0

	end as perc

from CTE

yes .. but i also want to see the values of column4,5 and 6 ..

i'v changed: unpivot (Value for property in (column1, column2, column3, column4, column5, column6)) p

that gives me this result:

column1, 10, 66, 0.2222
column2, 20, 66, 0.3333
column3, 30, 66, 0.5555
column4,  1, 66, ....
column5,  2, 66, ...
column6,  3, 66, ....

which is almost good because i need

column1, 10, 60, 0.2222
column2, 20, 60, 0.3333
column3, 30, 60, 0.5555
column4,  1, 6, %
column5,  2, 6, %
column6,  3, 6, %

so for column1 till 3 the total column only need to SUM the colums1 till 3
total column on column 4 till 6 needs to be the SUM of column 4 till 6

(select sum(Value) from CTE) as total

perhaps add a where clause?

columns can be clustered by taking the first 5 chars of the column name .. ic property

select  Property, 

        Value, 

        (select sum(Value) from CTE WHERE LEFT(t.property,5) = LEFT(property,5)) as total, 

        Value * 1.00 / (select sum(Value) from CTE WHERE LEFT(t.property,5) = LEFT(property,5)) as percentage

What about this?
;with CTE as (

select Property, Value, case when Property in ('column1', 'column2', 'column3') then 1 else 0 end as part

from

(select * from yourtable) o

unpivot (Value for property in (column1, column2, column3, column4, column5, column6)) p

)

select 	Property, 

	Value, 

	(select sum(Value) over(partition by part) from CTE) as total,

	Value * 1.00 / (select sum(Value) over(partition by part) from CTE) as percentage

Sorry I meant like this:
;with CTE as (

select Property, Value, case when property in ('column1', 'column2', 'column3') then 1 else 0 end as part

from

(select * from unpivo) o

unpivot (Value for property in (column1, column2, column3, column4, column5, column6)) p

)

select Property, Value, sum(Value) over (partition by part) as total, value * 1.0 / sum(Value) over (partition by part) as percentage from CTE

order by Property
