The expression you quote does not return a date of any sort.

What it does as written is say that if LatestShipDate is null then return the string "Final Maturity" otherwise return the string "Latest Ship Date".

If Final Maturity and Latest Ship Date are in fact the names of the date fields you actually want to return then modify the Iff expression to this...

IIf(IsNull([tblLetterOfCredit].[LatestShipDate]),[Final Maturity],[Latest Ship Date])

Then to get the format you want you would wrap the whole thing in a Format() statment...

Format(
IIf(IsNull([tblLetterOfCredit].[LatestShipDate]),[Final Maturity],[Latest Ship Date]),"mmmm yyyy")

Your question is not clear. You can format date as mmmm yyyy, but result of your iif is text. You can add date value in this format to the "Latest ship date" as:
IIf(IsNull([tblLetterOfCredit].[LatestShipDate]),"Final Maturity","Latest Ship Date: " & Format([tblLetterOfCredit].[LatestShipDate],"mmmm yyyy"))

I see it was text.

How to format the [tblLetterOfCredit].[FinalMaturity] as mmmm yyyy just as the ([tblTransactions.LatestShipDate] is formatted as mmmm yyyy (dont pay attn to previous as it has changed):

Dates: IIf(IsNull([tblTransactions].[LatestShipDate]),[tblLetterOfCredit].[FinalMaturity],Format([tblTransactions.LatestShipDate],"mmmm yyyy"))
