Excel Filter macro on two variables

    ActiveSheet.Range("$A$39:$DL$22265").AutoFilter Field:=52, Criteria1:= _
        ">=Para_Age_Min", Operator:=xlAnd, Criteria2:="<=Para_Age_Max"
End Sub

I have two variable
Para_Age_Min and and Para_Age_Max and am trying to write a macro which will sort a database ("$A$39:$DL$22265") by filtering only records that are >=Para_Age_Min and <=Para_Age_Max

Para_Age_Min and Para_Age_Max are numbers such as 2 and 6 and so I am trying to filter for example >=2 and <=6 for records in column 52

I am sure this problem would probably have been addressed in the past but my macro wont work as it return no records when it filters.

ie no records meet the criteria even though there are records that

I havent attached a file as it is simply too big but would appreciate if anybody can see if my rather simple macro has some form of logic or other problem
