Access query Expression - Convert to Currency Formatted Number

This is a follow on question to one earlier today.  That question discussed summing of Accountant AJE's based upon acct_numb and PdEndDate.

The solution brings in the correct total but I want the query to have the total formatted as a number in currency format.

Currently the code I used in the Builder is as follows:
AJEs: (FormatCurrency(nz([qryAcctntAJETtlbyPdEndAndAcctNbr].[Sum Of AJE],0),2))

When I use the results in subsequent queries it isn't seeing that number as a currency number.  Am I doing something wrong?

That works.  I will give Cap1 the majority of points since he was first.  One question though before finalizing.

Why on the qry results is that number left justified?  Any other number that is currency formatted is right justified.  Just a pet peeve.  When I go to the home tab and select that column in the results I can not select the right justified formatting.

PS One other issue.  On my qry table I have selected the "TOTALS" of records.  For the other columns that it brings in I can tell it to "Sum" the column.  However for that AJE's column the only options it gives is None or Count.  There is no Sum option.

Ah ha, So how can I change that stmt to format it as a Currency NUMBER.

Forget that last.  Just found it.....CCur(expr).  Thanks all!
Have you tried formatting on the query / field property sheet directly?

Tried that earlier and the "Format" section was blank.  No options.  Probably was trying it when my expression was incorrect.  I see that now.  Thanks
