I am getting the following error when I try to use Where clause in a LINQ statement:

Error      1      Cannot implicitly convert type 'System.DateTime' to 'bool'

I am trying to get back an ID from a table that has a matching date from combobox value.  Table I am getting the information from consists of a field call PK_StatementDateID (bigint type) and InvoiceDate (datetime type).  What am I doing wrong here?

np
Statements_ARDataContext db = new Statements_ARDataContext();

            var Id = from d in db.GetTable<StatementDate>()
                     where d.InvoiceDate = Convert.ToDateTime(comboBox1.SelectedValue)
                     select d;

Replace:
where d.InvoiceDate = Convert.ToDateTime(comboBox1.SelectedValue
with:
where d.InvoiceDate == Convert.ToDateTime(comboBox1.SelectedValue

Notice the == comparison operator
