Passing 2 string arguments to Function

See function Audit(..) below.
I have just amended this function to accept a second argument (Auditcat).
 
I then changed my  VBA that calls the function to the following;
Audit("a","b")


I get an immediate compile error "Expected :="  WHY?
I have never passed 2 arguments before - it seems to be the second argument that is causing the problem?? Is the syntax in Audit("a","b") wrong ?

If this is not clear I can create a database with an example and attach it.
....
Function Audit(ByRef PrimaryKey, ByRef Auditcat)
On Error GoTo Audit_err

If you want to use your format the put a call in front of it

Call Audit("a","b")

This will work provided that the function Audit is available from where you call it.
