This function is listed with the other Format(), but when I try to use the FormatCurrency in a Query, or Report I get only errors, as though it does not recognize this Function. Is this documented  somewhere? What's up with the FormatCurrency?

Just type the command under VBA and press F1 for the syntax.

The query indeed doesn't accept the function. (Guess M$ made a mistake)

I used a workaroud by creating a function in the modules section like:

Function fncFormatcurrency(strCurr As Currency)

fncFormatcurrency = FormatCurrency(strCurr, 2)

End Function

And the query:

SELECT fncFormatcurrency([UnitPrice]) AS Pr
FROM Products;

What will supply the wanted format.....

or you can directly using Format like this to show Currency in Format you want:

SELECT Format([UnitPrice],"##,##0.00") AS Pr
FROM Products;

You can use CCur...

"Where salary = ccur(""" & Format$(MyCurrencyValue) & """)"

That use the "regional setting"

Good Luck!
