What's wrong with this statement?

The expression below produces "#Error" in the Expr1 column of every record of the resulting Datasheet.
If I don't break out [BirthDate] from the quotes, Access "can't find the name BirthDate".

Expr1: DLookUp("[RMD]","[tbRMDpercents]","AgeEligible=Year(Date())-Year("+[BirthDate]+")")

RMD and AgeEligible are fields of tbRMDpercents.
BirthDate is a field included in one of the tables used to construct the query.

The expression          Age: Year(Date())-Year([BirthDate])            works ok

a few records in tbRMDpercents:
AgeEligible      RMD
      70             27.4
      71             26.5
      72             25.6
      73             24.7
