What is wrong with this syntax?

= DCount("[AwardedClient]", "tblClientGeneral", "[AwardedClient]= True") AND "[AwardedDate]" = Between Forms!frmSelectDateRange.txtStart and Forms!frmSelectDateRange.txtEnd

I'm trying to count the number of Trues in a table within a date range specified on an open form.

It should be something like this:

=DCount("[AwardedClient]", "tblClientGeneral", "[AwardedClient]= True And [AwardedDate] Between DateValue(" & Forms!frmSelectDateRange.txtStart & ") And DateValue(" & Forms!frmSelectDateRange.txtEnd & ")")

= DCount("[AwardedClient]", "tblClientGeneral", "[AwardedClient]= True AND [AwardedDate] Between " & Forms!frmSelectDateRange.txtStart & " and " & Forms!frmSelectDateRange.txtEnd)

Assuming that the dates are in date format. May need #s around the dates as well, as in #01/02/2014#

I have to change this and will issue a new request if needed.  The form is NOT going to be open so I have to use the report criteria something like:  (which is not working)

=DCount("[AwardedClient]", "tblClientGeneral", "[AwardedClient]= True And [AwardedDate] Between DateValue(" & Reports!rptImportAnalytics.txtWeekstartingdate & ") And DateValue(" & Reports!rptImportAnalytics.txtWeekstartingdate & ")+7")

Question is if the fields holds a value. Try first:

=DateValue(" & Reports!rptImportAnalytics.txtWeekstartingdate & ")

or simply:

=DateValue([txtWeekstartingdate])

Awarded to both of you because I changed the rules mid-stream.
