You mention formatting a graph in your question; I assume you mean on the axis.

You can right click on the axis and choose Format Axis.

The format options will appear on the Right Hand side of the screen. Midway down the screen there is an option for "Display units", choose "Thousands" from the drop down. Untick the "Show Display units label on chart" otherwise the word "Thousands" appears next to the Axis.

Further down you can then expand the Number options and choose Custom formats. If you choose a Standard format to begin with, eg accounting and include Symbol (I chose "€ English (Ireland)" to get correct symbol). Then you can tweak the format in the "Format code" box just below. I have used:

_([$€-1809]* #,##0_)"k";_([$€-1809]* (#,##0)"k";_([$€-1809]* "-"_);_(@_)
