help with getting percentage value in sql column value

I have the below query and value and I appreciate if I can get a percentage value I decimals with a percentage symbol also:

select b.Desc, (count(a.Status)*100 / (Select COUNT (*) from dbo.Test_T)) As Value, COUNT(a.Status)

From dbo.Test_T a, dbo.Status_T b

where a.Status = b.Status

group by b.Desc

currently I got values like:

Desc      Value      (No column name)
Closed      94      362
Open      5      23

I need:

Desc      Value      (No column name)
Closed      94.0%      362
Open      5.0%      23

I got the result wrong with your answer:

Desc      Value      (No column name)
 Closed       47.0%      362
 Open        3.0%      23


The percentage is not 47% for total of 385 records whats the percentage of 362 ? like 94.02% that is what I want

Sorry, it's only a materialzed result set in SSMS. A report would be pasting that to Excel.. which is really code at formatting values.

the query:

select b.Desc, str(((100.0*count(a.Status)) / sum((Select COUNT (*) from dbo.Test_T)) over ()), 5, 1)+'%' As Value, COUNT(a.Status)

Randy posted does give me the right answer here :

I have total rows of 385 and out of which 362 are closed status so I need a percentage for that which I could get using my query initially but an getting a rounded value instead in need to get the 2 decimals also that is what I am asking:

this is my query:

select b.Desc, (count(a.Status)*100 / (Select COUNT (*) from dbo.Test_T)) As Value, COUNT(a.Status)

 From dbo.Test_T a, dbo.Status_T b

 where a.Status = b.Status

 group by b.Desc
