Adding a Parameter to a Formula

Good morning!

In a nutshell, I need to create a formula where the user identifies the date range and if there is a donation within that date range, then return the value of the donation.

I have created a parameter, ?Asks as of   - this identifies a date range for the user to enter.
How do I combine the two in a formula?  

If ?Asks as of  then donation amount ? - I am missing something in the syntax here but can't think of it!

Thank you very much in advance,

It would be something like this

If {table,donation_date} in {?Asks as of] Then {table.donation_amount}
