# Help with finding the position of a value as a percentage

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.

 Min Max Value Position % 50 100 75 50% 10 30 20 50%

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?

Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

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