Using option control to open report

On a form I have an option group.  There are three choices the user can select from.  When the user clicks the first radio button I want a report to open that show only records where "Closed" in the underlying query is true.

Here is what I have but it doesn't work:

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptOpenReturns", acViewPreview, , "Closed" = True, acWindowNormal

Try this:

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptOpenReturns", acViewPreview, , "Closed = True", acWindowNormal

Note that I moved the end quote in the WHERE argument. Access expects to find a valid WHERE clause statement there (without the word "WHERE", of course).
