Access Query with Iif

Hi.  I have a user form for folks to run some data-defined reports.  It has a checkbox, asking if they also want to filter by contactID.  (Number) If checked, then they can choose the contact from a list, and the contacts ID is placed in a field called "MyContact".  If the FilterByContact is NOT checked, however, I would like the query to show ALL contacts just filter on the dates.  But the contact criteria is not working and I don't know how to tell it to show ALL contacts when the box is NOT checked.  Any help appreciate.

Here is the Query Criteria I have in the ContactID field:
IIf([Forms]![frmDateInputForm]![FilterByContact]=True,[forms]![frmDateInputForm]![MyContact],*)

It all works fine except when needing to show ALL.

Thanks,
