SSRS Parameter in Query

This below query runs GREAT.  But, for reporting purposes, I created a Parmeter in SSRS called "Date" and I can't seem to figure out how to have this SELECT query base its Date values off of the value the user will put in for this parameter.    I thought it would be something like this, but it doesn't seem to work:

SELECT     CHECKMAST.LEVEL1ORG, CHECKMAST.BANKACCTNUM, CHECKMAST.DATEPROCESSED, CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE, CHECKMAST.CHECKNUM,
                      CHECKMAST.CHECKAMT, CHECKMAST.CHECKDATE, CHECKMAST.STATUS
FROM         AP.CHECKMAST CHECKMAST
WHERE     (CHECKMAST.LEVEL1ORG = 2000) AND (CHECKMAST.BANKACCTNUM = '726252') AND
                      (CHECKMAST.DATEPROCESSED >= (@DATE)) AND (CHECKMAST.DATEPROCESSED < (@DATE)) OR
                      (CHECKMAST.LEVEL1ORG = 2000) AND (CHECKMAST.BANKACCTNUM = '726252') AND (CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE >= (@DATE))
                       AND (CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE < (@DATE))
SELECT     CHECKMAST.LEVEL1ORG, CHECKMAST.BANKACCTNUM, CHECKMAST.DATEPROCESSED, CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE, CHECKMAST.CHECKNUM, 
                      CHECKMAST.CHECKAMT, CHECKMAST.CHECKDATE, CHECKMAST.STATUS
FROM         AP.CHECKMAST CHECKMAST
WHERE     (CHECKMAST.LEVEL1ORG = 2000) AND (CHECKMAST.BANKACCTNUM = '726252') AND 
                      (CHECKMAST.DATEPROCESSED >= { ts '2008-10-17 00:00:00' }) AND (CHECKMAST.DATEPROCESSED < { ts '2008-10-18 00:00:00' }) OR
                      (CHECKMAST.LEVEL1ORG = 2000) AND (CHECKMAST.BANKACCTNUM = '726252') AND (CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE >= { ts '2008-10-17 00:00:00' })
                       AND (CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE < { ts '2008-10-18 00:00:00' })

In the crystal code the dates are hardcoded and in each of the ranges there is a one day difference (2008-10-17 to 2008-10-18). Your SQL query is using the same parameter on both sides of the range (ie: 2008-10-17 to 2008-10-17). For this to work like the crystal code you will either need to create another date parameter (ie: EndDate) or you need to add 1 day to the date the user selects.

I was just going to add one day to the date the user selects.

I can't figure out how to tell this SELECT statement though to use the Parameter.  What would it look like?

You have the parameter setup in the query properly but the brackets are unnecessary (you only need these when you are using an IN operator). You can use the DateAdd function to add a day to the parameter from within the query. Example:
(CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE >= @DATE)
                       AND (CHECKMAST.VOIDPOSTDATE < DATEADD(day, 1, @DATE))
