Is this SSRS?
Try these steps from MS

To display percentage values as labels on a pie chart
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd239373(v=sql.110).aspx

Add a pie chart to your report. For more information, see Add a Chart to a Report (Report Builder and SSRS).

On the design surface, right-click on the pie and select Show Data Labels. The data labels should appear within each slice on the pie chart.

On the design surface, right-click on the labels and select Series Label Properties. The Series Label Properties dialog box appears.

Type #PERCENT for the Label data option.

(Optional) To specify how many decimal places the label shows, type "#PERCENT{Pn}" where n is the number of decimal places to display. For example, to display no decimal places, type "#PERCENT{P0}".

Right-hand click on the percentage values.
Go to Properties (press F4) - Misc - Format.
Type the following in Misc - Format:

0"%"

Open in new window


Please note, it does not convert it into percentages, it merely adds the % sign afterwards, which was your question.
