Trying to export fiel to desktop with date field included in the name of the file

I have this code which exports a file to the desktop just fine...

strXLFile = strDesktopPath & "\Checklist - " & Forms!frmIHMGnotes.Text328 & " To Office " & ".xml"

But when I try to add a field from the open form (txtDateOfVisit), I get an error using...

strXLFile = strDesktopPath & "\Checklist - " & Forms!frmIHMGnotes.Text328 & " To Office " & Me.txtDateofVisit & ".xml"

I'm pretty sure it's a syntax thing.  Can someone help?

That did not work but I think I know why but don't know how to fix it.   txtDateofVisit  is a date field like 11/14/2014.  But the exported file name can't have "/" marks in it.  Right?

So then how can I convert 11/14/2014 to read 11142014 (without the slash marks)?
