Miltiple Criteria, Open Report Missing Operator


I have the below and can't find where my syntex error is?  I have tried several things and still nothing.  Either it comes back as an empty string or syntex error as Missing Operator?

What do you think?

the EntryPoint is a ComboBox and the Date is a Date/Time field

        Dim stDocName As String
        Dim stLinkCriteria As String
        stDocName = "rpt_BackgroundCheck"
        stLinkCriteria = "[Date]=" & Me![Date] & " And  [EntryPoint]=" & Me![EntryPoint]
        DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewPreview, , stLinkCriteria

You have to add the # string before and after a date

"[Date]=#" & Me![Date] & "# And  [EntryPoint]=" & Me![EntryPoin

and by the way, *bad* idea to have a field named that is a reserved word or expression in VBA.

 You can use Rick Fisher's find and replace:

 to change it all over to something else.  Note free, but cheap and reasonable, and it works very well.  Every Access developer should have this, along with MZ tools (free) and Smart Indenter (free).

I changed the naming convention and still comes back as missing operator?

Is EntryPoint a string or number ?

If its a string you need to add '
stLinkCriteria = "[Date]=#" & Me![Date] & "# And  [EntryPoint]='" & Me![EntryPoint] & "'"

OK, Can I ask just one more Question?

If I want to add a 3rd string or 3rd criteria how can I add that?

Sorry, I got the one working and now you helped me with the two, but if there is a 3rd? (incidentally there will be in the future)

I got it:
stLinkCriteria1 = "[DateChecked]=#" & Me![DateChecked] & "# And  [EntryPoint]='" & Me![EntryPoint] & "' And [Background]='" & Me![Background] & "'"
