Help to write LINQ query

Hi,
 
  I am new to LINQ and need a LINQ query base on user's selection.  

  'This selection maybe more if user input more filter
  selection = "DeptName = "Accounting" And StudyYear = 2005"

                Dim query = From s In db.vwStudies
                            Where (selection)
                            Select s.StudyID, s.DeptName, s.FirstLastName, s.StudyYear

I got this error message:
Conversion from string "s.DeptName = 'Berman Center' AND" to type 'Boolean' is not valid.


PLEASE HELP!

Thank you so much!

I think your selection filter must be enclosed in single quotes

i.e.

 "DeptName = ' "Accounting " ' " And StudyYear = 2005"

Sorry my typo....  But here is my more detailed code.  I had it right that it was encoused in single quotes.

            If Not ddlDepartment.SelectedItem.ToString = "All Departments" Then
                If Len(selection) = 0 Then
                    selection = selection & "s.DeptName = '" & ddlDepartment.SelectedItem.ToString & "'"
                Else
                    selection = selection & " AND s.DeptName = '" & ddlDepartment.SelectedItem.ToString & "'"
                End If
            End If

            If Not ddlStudyYear.SelectedItem.ToString = "All First Name" Then
                If Len(selection) = 0 Then
                    selection = selection & "StudyYear = " & CType(ddlStudyYear.SelectedItem, Integer)
                Else
                    selection = selection & " AND s.StudyYear = " & CType(ddlStudyYear.SelectedItem, Integer)
                End If
            End If

            End If Dim query = From s In db.vwStudies
                            Where (selection)
                            Select s.StudyID, s.DeptName, s.FirstLastName, s.StudyYear

Got Error:

Conversion from string "s.DeptName = 'Accounting' AND" to type 'Boolean' is not valid.

Do you see a problem there? a AND without another condition.

It is the error cut off.  The condition is there.  

I did more research, I need to convert it to dynamic LINQ...
