MS Access Need help with VBA where SQL statement

How can I add "employee" (Me.cboEmp) to the delete statement?

I.E. I need to delete records by date & employee, in lieu of just dates because all users with the specified date will be deleted.

Private Sub Command103_Click()
Dim strSQL As String
Dim dtmNextDate As Date

If Me.cboEmp.ListIndex = -1 Then
    MsgBox " Please select employee"
    Exit Sub
End If

If Me.txtEnd & "" = "" Then
   MsgBox " Please select start date"
   Exit Sub

End If

If Me.txtStart & "" = "" Then
   MsgBox " Please select end date"
   Exit Sub

End If

dtmNextDate = Me.txtStart
    Do Until dtmNextDate = Me.txtEnd + 1
        strSQL = "DELETE * FROM  tblEmpTimeOff WHERE etoDate BETWEEN #" & Me.txtStart & "# AND #" & Me.txtEnd & "#"
        CurrentDb.Execute strSQL, dbFailOnError
        dtmNextDate = dtmNextDate + 1
    Me.cboEmp = ""
    Me.cboReason = ""
    Me.txtEnd = ""
    Me.txtStart = ""
    MsgBox "Records Deleted, Thank You"
End Sub

strSQL = "DELETE * FROM  tblEmpTimeOff WHERE (etoDate BETWEEN #" & Me.txtStart & "# AND #" & Me.txtEnd & "#) AND employee = " & chr(34) &  Me.cboEmp & chr(34)

Open in new window

Or if employee is a numeric ID:

strSQL = "DELETE * FROM  tblEmpTimeOff WHERE (etoDate BETWEEN #" & Me.txtStart & "# AND #" & Me.txtEnd & "#) AND employee = "   & Me.cboEmp

Open in new window
