Query to exclude value based on form selection

I have an Access 2003 database with a basic query that pulls parameters from a form. I want to exclude the last parameter of the WHERE clause (L.LicensedById = Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!LicensedBy) if the value passed to it is 0. The column that holds the values is an integer and will contain a 1 or 2. Basically if the user doesn't select a value (1 or 2) then I want to return all results whether its a 1 or a 2.

Query below:
SELECT
     Count(*) AS Total
FROM
     dbo_tblApplications AS A
INNER JOIN
     dbo_tblLicense AS L ON A.CredentialID=L.LicenseID
WHERE
     (A.DateReceived>=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!FromDate And A.DateReceived<=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!ToDate)
     And (L.LicenseTypeID=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!LicenseType)
     And (A.ApplicationType=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!ApplicationType)
     And (L.LicensedById = Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!LicensedBy);

I believe this should work for you:


SELECT
     Count(*) AS Total
FROM
     dbo_tblApplications AS A
INNER JOIN
     dbo_tblLicense AS L ON A.CredentialID=L.LicenseID
WHERE
     (A.DateReceived>=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!FromDate And A.DateReceived<=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!ToDate)
     And (L.LicenseTypeID=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!LicenseType)
     And (A.ApplicationType=Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!ApplicationType)
     And (Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!LicensedBy = 0 
      Or (Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!LicensedBy <> 0 And L.LicensedById = Forms!frmApplicationsTotal!LicensedBy))
