Trouble saving variable

I have problems when you save a variable of a command. I have put the following line:

CONEXION_BAGDAD = $ (grep-c "Please login with USER and PASS" $ LOG_FILE_BAGDAD)

But I returned the following error:
syntax error at line 67: `CONEXION_BAGDAD = $ 'unexpected

Because it can happen?

Thank you.

you can use any of the following. But don't put space between variable name and command.
CONEXION_BAGDAD=`grep-c "Please login with USER and PASS" $ LOG_FILE_BAGDAD`
CONEXION_BAGDAD=$(grep-c "Please login with USER and PASS" $ LOG_FILE_BAGDAD)

Thank you!!,
and I think I solved it.
