By using either Cast or CONVERT - see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa226054(v=sql.80).aspx for more information.

SELECT CAST([FileCount] as varchar(16)) + "%"
  FROM [Document]

-- Or like below but mind you is the [FileCount] really a percentage or you need to calculate that

SELECT cast([FileCount] as sysname) + '%'  AS FileCount FROM [Document];
