Calculate percentage of value returned by summary field

Calculate percentage of value returned by summary field

This is perhaps a tricky one. I cannot get a count entered in a formula to return a group based result. It only returns the grand total. A summary field though works on a group based calculation. The snag is that I cannot access a summary field (or at least cannot work out how to) from a formula.

So basically, I want to get the results of one formula I have written as a sum of the results and then divide that by the total number of cases for the group to get the percentage (multiplied by 100 of course).

It something which should be easy but I just can't remember how or if I have done it before.
