Multiselect for Report Criteria

I have a form with a multiselect list box and another box that multiselect choices are copied to.  There is also an option group with two members.  I am trying to assign code to the Click event of a command button so that when someone makes their choices from the multiselect, then specifies the report they want to view, the proper report will come up showing the information filtered by the multiselect choices.

I'm having a little trouble with this.  Any guidance?

DoCmd.OpenReport has an optional fourth argument which allows you to specify a WHERE clause, without the WHERE. All you have to do is build the criteria based on the selected items in your list box, and pass it to the DoCmd.OpenReport.
ex. (not tested)
Dim sWhere As String
Dim iCnt1 As Integer

sWhere = ""
For iCnt1 = 1 To Me.SomeListBox.ItemsSelected.Count
    sWhere = sWhere & " AND (FieldInReportQuery = " Me.SomeListBox.ItemsSelected(iCnt1) & ")"
    ' Will need to paste in quotes if your values are strings,
    ' # if dates, ex.
    'sWhere = sWhere & " AND (FieldInReportQuery = '" Me.SomeListBox.ItemsSelected(iCnt1) & "')"

    'sWhere = sWhere & " AND (FieldInReportQuery = #" Me.SomeListBox.ItemsSelected(iCnt1) & "#)"

Next iCnt1
' Strip of first " AND "
If Len(sWhere) > 0 Then
    sWhere = Mid$(sWhere,5)
End If
DoCmd.OpenReport "ReportName", acNormal, , sWhere
