One way:

B1: =TEXT(A1,"0%")

alternatively,

B1: =A1

format B1 as a percentage with no decimal points.

Why use TEXT? In B1 enter =A1 and then format B1 as percent with zero
decimals.
But if you must: =TEXT(A1,"0%")

One reason for using TEXT() is if the OP wants to export data to another
application, such as through mail merge to MS Word.
