BCP Using a variable in the Where Clause

I need to pass a variable to bcp using queryout

This is being called from within a stored procedure like this:

While @minpo < @maxpo
Begin

SET @CmdString = 'bcp "SELECT * FROM #Outputtmp where ponumber = "" @minpo """ queryout "' + @Directory + '\' + @FileName + '" -c -U' + @User + ' -P' + @Pass


SELECT TOP 1 @minPO = PONumber
FROM #outputtmp
WHERE PONumber > @minpo
ORDER BY PONumber

End

@CmdString ends up looking like this:

bcp "SELECT * FROM #Outputtmp where ponumber = "" @minpo """ queryout "c:\570\101370000570.oro" -c -Usoandso -PN/A

Can anyone help me with this.  

Thanks.

this should work better:
SET @CmdString = 'bcp "SELECT * FROM #Outputtmp where ponumber = ''' + @minpo + ''' queryout "' + @Directory + '\' + @FileName + '" -c -U' + @User + ' -P' + @Pass
