Access VBA syntax for report criteria

Thank you in advance for your help.

I am printing a report using VBA. I need to specify 2 criteria for the report to select what I want to print.
I created the syntax the way I thought it should work but I am getting a type mismatch error.

[Property Address 1] is a text field and [DAte Placed] is a date field

Below is my syntax.

    Dim strLinkCriteria As String
    Dim stDocName as String

    stDocName = "Result Letter"

    strLinkCriteria = "[Property Address 1] =" & "'" & Me![Property Address 1] & "'" And "[Date Placed] =" & "'" & Me.[Date Placed] & "'"
    DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewPreview, , strLinkCriteria

Many thanks for your help
