Hi PNKJ,
On the face of it, all you need is a formula field with:

Round(@number/1000,0)

You have to create a new Formula Field in the field explorer.

When you have done that you drag the formula field into the report.

A little help with creating a formula

Display the field insertion popup
Click the FORMULA Tab
Click NEW (may have to right click)
Name - MyRoundedNumber
Formula
As Above

Click SAVE
Close the formula editor

Drag the formula onto the report and delete your other field

it is 'and' or 'else you are using in the formula? Replace 'and' with 'else' if you are using 'and' in the formula

If @number is another formula it needs to be in { }

IN your record do you have several numeric values you want rounded?  If so you will need to have a formula for each

For example to get the meat products
If {datatable.section} = 1 or Trim({data_table.section_name}) = "yearly report" then
   Round({datatable.meatproducts}/1000,0)
else
   {datatable.meatproducts}            

for the else part use whatever value you need if it isn't section 1 or the yearly report
