Excess Foreign Tax Credit

I have gone through the entire Foreign Tax Credit process. I live in the Netherlands and paid about €9,000 in taxes to the Netherlands on income I earned here. I expect to claim a credit to offset my US taxes that I owe. After I input everything, the final page states that I have an excess foreign tax credit. In other words, it acknowledges that I paid more taxes in the Netherlands than the US, but this isn't actually reflected in the rest of the program. The amount I owe on my federal taxes isn't reduced at all once I get to this final page.  Is the program not working, or when will I see this credit reflected?
