condense 3 loops into 1

This code has the same iterations 3 times.  How can I keep only one loop and simply modify only the 3 variables in bold.  I don't see a pattern for the ages that would work as I was thinking of putting a loop within a loop.

as you can see, the bold did not work for me but I think you can see the variables that need attention

Something like this could work:

'Get List of 8 to 12 and under--------
for x as int16 = 8 to 22 step 5
  if x = 18 then 
    y = 20
  else
    y = x + 4
  end if

                "DECLARE @todt AS datetime " & _
                "SET @fromdt = '" & DTPicker1 & "' " & _

Open 3 recordsets, and loop through them all:

E.G.

'Get List of 8 to 12 and under--------
       esql1 = "DECLARE @fromdt AS datetime " & _
                "DECLARE @todt AS datetime " & _

                "SET @todt = '" & DTPicker2 & "' " & _
                "SELECT  p.Agency, count(distinct r.RegID) " & _

You'll need to double-check the EOF flags, because you have multiple recordsets.
