Openform to display filtered records by year

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2016-01-27
On form #1 I have a combobox that allows the user to select records from a year.  The actual date fields in the table are short date like 1/12/2016.  But the combo-box displays "2016" because of the format in the query like:

Year: Format([TargetResolutionDate],"yyyy")

But then using a command button under the combo-box I'm trying to open a 2nd form to display all the records that had a TargetResolutionDate in 2016.

I've tried this but it doesn't work:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmProjectIssue", , , "[TargetResolutionDate] = #" & Format([cboProjectDate], "yyyy") & "#"

Can someone help?
