Hi all...I have a query that I'm struggling with, I'm not too sure if I'm going too technical too quickly tbh!

I have some values laid out in a table similar to below, I need a formula that can automatically calculate the position of the value in % form.

MinMaxValuePosition %
501007550%
10302050%

I cannot figure it out. The formula needs to find where the value sits between the min and max values - then return that as a percentage.

Is this even possible?

It's basically =(value-min)/(max-min) and format as a percentage.
