Problem with a SQL Command in Crystal Reports

This expression in my SQL Command seems to be gumming up the works:

CONVERT(VARCHAR(8), DATEADD(year, -1, {?BeginDate}), 112)

I get the attached error message.

The funny this is that if I simply replace {?BeginDate} with a string value like '20091001', everything works like a charm. This makes no sense since they're both strings and should give the same result.

Any ideas?
