I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Creae a formula field as...

{table.field}/1000

Then use format field to set the number of decimal places.

I can't see any way you can do this via formatting.
You have to create a formula field for each one.
