DoCmd.OpenReport Syntax Error (Comma in query expression)

Trying to run a report from VBA.  The query it uses asks for a parameter.  I'm trying to pass the parameter into the query and getting a syntax error.  The parameter/variable is set prior with a recordset number.

Here's the VBA code:
Dim lngInvoiceNumber As Long
lngInvoiceNumber = rs("tblRepat.Invoice_number")

DoCmd.OpenReport "InvOne", acViewNormal, qryOneInvoice, "[tblRepat.Invoice_number] = " & lngInvoiceNumber & ", , lngInvoiceNumber"

I get an error:
Syntax Error in (comma) in query expression '[tblRepat.Invoice_number] = 423,,lngInvoiceNumber

Using Access 2007

What I'm doing is:
Change the printer to pdf
Pulli a list of all invoices for the day
Looping thru the recordset and converting each invoice to a pdf.  
The query for the report requires an invoice number.

tblRepat is 1 of the tables the query "qryOneInvoice" pulls from.  
The report InvOne has a data source of qryOneInvoice.  

qryOneInvoice is:
SELECT tblRepat.Invoice_number, tblRepat.[Customer Key Cod], tblRepat.[Invoice date], tblItems.Invoice_number, tblItems.Items, SUM(tblItems.Item_Amt) AS Item_Amt
FROM tblRepat INNER JOIN tblItems ON tblRepat.Invoice_number=tblItems.Invoice_number
WHERE (((tblRepat.Invoice_number)=[ENTER INVOICE NUMBER]))
GROUP BY ;

It came up asking for which invoice_number do you mean - so ran this:
DoCmd.OpenReport "InvOne", acViewPreview, , "[tblRepat.Invoice_number] = " & lngInvoiceNumber

Now a popup window comes up with Enter Invoice Number.  I was hoping lngInvoiceNumber would be passed along.

you have to remove the Where clause in qryOneInvoice,

SELECT tblRepat.Invoice_number, tblRepat.[Customer Key Cod], tblRepat.[Invoice date], tblItems.Invoice_number, tblItems.Items, SUM(tblItems.Item_Amt) AS Item_Amt
FROM tblRepat INNER JOIN tblItems ON tblRepat.Invoice_number=tblItems.Invoice_number

try again
