VBScript: Search AD For Specific Printer By Host Name (Quotes Issue?)

I have a script that I modified to search AD for a specific printer and then return values. I can get the script to work if I place in the script the specific name of the printer and execute the script but if I want to use a variable with an input box it does not seem to work. I am wondering if it has to do with quotes (single/double). Can anyone provide some insight?

Here is the code that doesnt work.

try this:

objCommand.CommandText = "Select printerName, serverName, driverName, location, printColor from " & " 'LDAP://DC=DC,DC=COM'  where objectClass='printQueue' AND printerName='" & strPrinter & "'"
