Try this, basically, you are trying to sum two fields, but not sum the two remaining ones, I have made an assumption that you need to sum all 4 of the returned fields.

SELECT Sum(dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldLaborHrs) AS SumOfldLaborHrs,
Sum(dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldEarnedHrs) AS SumOfldEarnedHrs,
Sum(IIf([ldLaborRate]=0,[ebLaborRate],[ldLaborRate])) AS AdjLaborRate,
Sum(Round16([ldLaborHrs]*[AdjLaborRate],2)) AS ldAmount
FROM dbo_View_LaborDtl
LEFT JOIN dbo_View_EmpBasic
ON dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldEmployeeNum = dbo_View_EmpBasic.ebEmpId
WHERE (((dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldPayrollDate)>=Eval('[Forms]![frmCSLPL]![txtStartDate]')
And (dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldPayrollDate)<=Eval('[Forms]![frmCSLPL]![txtEndDate]'))
AND ((dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldLaborType)<>"I") AND ((dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldLaborHedSeq)<>0));

Try this.

SELECT Sum(dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldLaborHrs) AS SumOfldLaborHrs,
Sum(dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldEarnedHrs) AS SumOfldEarnedHrs,
Sum(IIf([ldLaborRate]=0,[ebLaborRate],[ldLaborRate])) AS AdjLaborRate,
Round16(Sum([ldLaborHrs]*IIf([ldLaborRate]=0,[ebLaborRate],[ldLaborRate])),2) AS ldAmount
FROM dbo_View_LaborDtl
LEFT JOIN dbo_View_EmpBasic
ON dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldEmployeeNum = dbo_View_EmpBasic.ebEmpId
WHERE (((dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldPayrollDate)>=Eval('[Forms]![frmCSLPL]![txtStartDate]')
And (dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldPayrollDate)<=Eval('[Forms]![frmCSLPL]![txtEndDate]'))
AND ((dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldLaborType)<>"I") AND ((dbo_View_LaborDtl.ldLaborHedSeq)<>0));
