The simplest way is, in the format code set it to "c" or "c2". This is the default for currency but it is your local currency.
You can also specify a custom format like €#,0.00

You could use an expression in the format property like;
=Fields!CurrencySymbol.Value + "#,0.00"

You can write a routine to do all this too, but this is probably enough to get you going.

Cheers
