Default how to divide a numbers in a table of data by 1,000, all at once

Enter 1000 in an unused cell.

Copy that cell.

Select the range to change and editpaste specialdivideokesc.

Delete the cell with 1000

Alternative for cell display only which shows 1,403 but leaves the original
value as 1403000..............better method in my mind.

Custom Format to #,###,

I've noticed in some spreadsheets that numbers are displayed as
rounded...i.e. so that one isn't looking at 1,403,333 + 2,333,999 etc. but
rather 1403 + 2334, etc. with a note at the top that says "000's".

In one step, how can I edit all the numbers in a table so that they show to
the nearest 10,000 (i.e. 1403 +2334), without dividing them one by one by

Or, to go at it from another angle, how do I divide each # by 1,000?

The ROUND feature requires that I create a new table. Not exactly what I'm
looking for.
