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?  
error on one record

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")
