Hi,
I am helping someone with a worksheet and he has a column of numbers that add to a total and then calculates a % of the total from the new number.
Right now, he has to change the formula each time to capture the new number he enters.
Here is a sample file.
Your help is appreciated.

....although you don't really need SUM function - try

=1-LOOKUP(10^10,A:A)/A2
