Try this ...

USD Equivalent: Format(Round(IIf([tblCurrencyExchange].[CurrencyID]=1,"",[tblFXRates]![Amount]*[tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate]), 0),"$#,##0")

OK thanks.

It is a little odd that I get a #error on only one particular record.  Would you know why?

the [Amount] and [tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate] are populated...little odd would get that error.  
recopied here:
USD Equivalent: Format(Round(IIf([tblCurrencyExchange].[CurrencyID]=1,"",[tblFXRates]![Amount]*[tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate]), 0),"$#,##0")

Ok, the USD Eauivalent calculated formula will return "" for the value which cannot be formatted to currency ... Try this instead.

USD Equivalent: Format(Round(IIf([tblCurrencyExchange].[CurrencyID]=1,0,Nz([tblFXRates]![Amount], 0)*Nz([tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate], 0), 0),"$#,##0")

ahh I see.  

It gives me a wrong number of args.  I have played around with parenth but couldnt figure it out.   It hightlights the 2nd parent.

]![ExchangeRate], 0), 0),"$#,##0")

Yes, you are missing a closing parenth ... Try this one ...

USD Equivalent: Format(Round(IIf([tblCurrencyExchange].[CurrencyID]=1,0,Nz([tblFXRates]![Amount],0)*Nz([tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate],0)),0),"$#,##0")
