Format as currecy for just the one current record

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2017-04-04
I have a form that is a datasheet view form.  There are two fields on the form.  One is Category (cboCategory) and the other one is NetAmount (txtNetAmount).  If Category = "Volume" then I want txtNetAmount to display as Currency But Just For That Record.

Right now if I select "Category" all of the Net Amounts display as currency in all of the records.  They need to display as Single, Standard, 2 decimals like the field is formatted in the table.

What am I doing wrong?
