MS Access Query - Percentages

Last Modified: 2015-12-23
Hey Experts,

Trying to calculate the percentages.  So far I have a code that counts the results and displays them. This code is here:

SELECT LitOrigName.litName AS Originator, Count(LitOrigName.litName) AS [Number Of Members]
FROM MemberMasterTable INNER JOIN LitOrigName ON FellowshipMasterTable.litID = LitOrigName.litID
GROUP BY LitOrigName.litName;

Now, I would like to calculate the percentages of each result.  The Originator column produces 5 different results, with the first result displaying a count of 200 out of a total of 549.  I want to create a percentage column that displays the results, so the first result would produce a percentage result of 36.4% from 200/549.
