Apply filter to report already filtered

Hi,
Trying to filter a report that is already filtered based on a optionframe    

The report is based on a shipments query which includes all the fields from the shipments table and opens unfiltered (me.filter="")
The user clicks a customer option frame on the opened report to filter by customer.
There are buttons on the report relating to pack types which I want to be able to apply a second filter on the already filtered report.

this code

Me.Filter = "fkPackTypeID = 1" And "fkCustID = " & Me.frameCustomer
Me.FilterOn = True

doesn't seem to work.

I haven't tried using a form to 'drive' the report, as I want the user to be able to do the filtering on the already open report. Am I making it harder than it needs to be? Or have I got the ampersand wrong again?

Any help would be appreciated

Try this instead:

Me.Filter = "fkPackTypeID = 1 AND fkCustID = " & Me.frameCustomer
Me.FilterOn = True

If the value of 1 is dynamic - that is, you get it from your option group - then you could do this:

Me.Filter = "fkPackTypeID = " & Me.YourOptionGroup & " AND fkCustID = " & Me.frameCustomer
Me.FilterOn = True

Thanks a lot,
I knew it would be something to do with the apostrophes and ampersands. I just can't get the hang of that.
