? is Showing On FileMaker Pro Report

I have a report I have created and the value for the field year isn't displaying, instead a ? is displayed when the report is run and displayed in the Preview Mode.

I have verified that the field has a value in it.

Please tell me how to fix this.

    A question mark usually indicate either 1) a invalid value for the field, or 2) that the field is not large enough to display the full value at it's current dimensions and formatting. Try making the field larger, using a small font, etc. If you turn on View -> Show -> Sample Data, you can see what it will look like, though doing so on a summary field will also cause the field to calculate which may be slow depending on  what is being summarized.

    It was formatted as currency and that is why it wasn't showing.
