    Use a Textbox, instead of a label, and write the expression:

    in the Control Source Property of the Textbox.

    If you are using Access2007 or later version of Access then you may assign a Date into a Temporary Variable and use that value.

    Function ParmValue() As Date
    Tempvars.Add "ParmValue", InputBox("date here")
    End Function
    You can also do it in a Macro with the SetTempvar Action.

    1. Use the Value in Query criteria expression Tempvars![ParamValue]
    2. Use it in a Textbox on the Report, in place of Label, with the expression =Tempvars![ParamValue]
