Dcount problem. Gotta be something simple.

I have a tracking table that saves performance counts. The code runs without error, but each line (incorrectly) returns only 0 -- except in the one line that looks for today's date (line 2).  Looked at a bunch of examples, but can't see the problem,  Here's what I've got:
    fldAddedToPickQueue.Value = DCount("*", "WorkingTasksQ", "DateEntered=Date()") '
    fldPlannerQueue.Value = DCount("*", "WorkingTasksQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldPartsAddedStdLead.Value = DCount("*", "PartsAddedStdLeadQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldPartsAddedShortLead.Value = DCount("*", "PartsAddedShortLeadQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldReassigned.Value = DCount("*", "ReassignedQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldInPlannerQueueMoreThan5Days.Value = DCount("*", "InPlannerQueueMoreThan5DaysQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldEndPlannerQueue.Value = DCount("*", "TasksT", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldReservationQueue.Value = DCount("*", "ReservationsQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldConfirmedPicks.Value = DCount("*", "ConfirmedPicksQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldEndReservationQueue.Value = DCount("*", "ClosedPicksNotInMB25Q", "DateClosed=Date()")
    fldHot1MachTstBldDwn.Value = DCount("*", "HotNowQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldHot2NeededInNxt2Days.Value = DCount("*", "HotIn2DaysQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldPastDue.Value = DCount("*", "PastDueQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldStkdPrtsGrtrThn5Days.Value = DCount("*", "StkdPrtsGrtrThn5DaysQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldNotStkdPrtsGrtrThn30Days.Value = DCount("*", "NotStkdPrtsGrtrThn30DaysQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")
    fldPlant.Value = "HX01"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you have the " at the wrong place in the criteria part

fldPlannerQueue.Value = DCount("*", "WorkingTasksQ", "[Plant]" = "HX01")

should be

fldPlannerQueue.Value = DCount("*", "WorkingTasksQ", "[Plant] = "HX01"")

or, I prefer this

fldPlannerQueue.Value = DCount("*", "WorkingTasksQ", "[Plant] = 'HX01'")
