Your error is with the """.  it should be "'" (double quote, single quote, double quote).

DoCmd.OpenReport "ECVReport", acViewPreview, "ECVResult Report Query", "Code =""" & A & """" And "ExamYear =" & Chr(34) & Me!combExamYear & Chr(34)


Now, if CODE is to be the literal A character and ExamYear is an integer/value and not  a string.
"Code = 'A' AND ExamYear = " & Me!combExamYear

If examyear is a string then you'd have to do this:
"Code = 'A' AND ExamYear = '" & Me!combExamYear & "'"

That would be = single double & Me!combExamYear & double single double.

I would use a variable for the where clause then it is easier to debug as you can inspect its value before trying to run the report.
If A is a variabl then the code below will work for you, if A is a literal then you need to put " around it.
Finally I have put a Debug.Print strWHERE so it will show the value of strWHERE in the Immediate Window. If you put a breakpoint (F9) on the OpenReport line you can inspect the value before trying to open the report.
Cheers, Andrew
Dim strWHERE as String
strWHERE = "Code =" & Chr(34) & A & Chr(34) & " And "ExamYear = " & Chr(34) & Me!combExamYear & Chr(34)
Debug.Print strWHERE
DoCmd.OpenReport "ECVReport", acViewPreview, "ECVResult Report Query", strWHERE
