Default remove percent symbol on percentage formatted cells in excel

Hello,

I'm trying to get a cell to have a percent format but not display the
percent symbol "%".

How can I do that? if at all.

It can surely be done, at the risk of confusing people who don't know
what they're looking at. In whatever percentage calculation you have,
multiply the result by 100, or at the end of the calculation add "*100"
( star one zero zero without the quotes).
