```On WinXP, Mathematica v5.1, and using:

<http://jowett.home.cern.ch/jowett/Accelerator/ConstantsUnits.html>
(a very useful extension to the inbuilt Mathematica packages)

Needs["Accelerator`ConstantsUnits`"]
Resistor = 1 Mega Ohm;
Voltage = 1 Milli Volt;
Current = Voltage / Resistor

Convert[Current, Ampere]

gives

Ampere/1000000000

Is that what you wanted?
