Correct syntax for two parameters in vba SELECT statement

I am writing vba code in Access 2010.  I want to pass two parameters to a SELECT statement in code and I can't seem to figure out where the various quote marks go.  Here is an illustration:  (the variables are already dimensioned as integers)

nStateFIPS = an integer value that comes from an open recordset
nCountFIPS = another integer value that comes from the same recordset

 I want to open a second recordset (rst2) based on a query (MyQuery) where both variables determine which records are included.

Here is the line I can't seem to get right:
rst2.Open "Select * From MyQuery where ((fips_st_cd = nStateFIPS) And (fips__cnty_cd = nCountyFIPS))"

The error I get is something to the effect of no value given for one or more of the parameters...  When I hover over the variable names where they are given their value, I see the correct values, but they are not getting into the SELECT statement.  

Thanks very much in advance...

It would be:

rst2.Open "Select * From MyQuery where ((fips_st_cd = " & nStateFIPS & ") And (fips__cnty_cd = " & nCountyFIPS & "))"
