It is a good idea to check for valid dates in the controls, and (if they contain valid dates) save the values to Date variables, for use in the expression.  Here is some sample code:

   If IsDate(Me![txtDate].Value) = True Then
      dteSingle = CDate(Me![txtDate].Value)
   End If

Does this work?
=DSum("[Qty]","tblSalesOrdTranx")
if not STOP and fix it...then proceed.
Does this work:
DSum("[Qty]","tblSalesOrdTranx","[DateEntered] =" & me.txtStart )
If not then STOP and fix it...then proceed.
Does this work:
DSum("[Qty]","tblSalesOrdTranx","[DateEntered]=" & 3/15/2012 )

..ect

In other words your formula should not have gotten that complex ("Between") before you discovered something was wrong...

Most syntax errors are easy to spot (as your was), ...However, it is interesting that you did not post what *You* tried first to resolve this...
   ("Experts, I tried this, this and that, and some other thing, and none of them worked"
;-)
Sound fair?
