Displaying Data from SQL table

Hi,

 

I'm attempting to use a Display Form to show the data from an SQL table. I need to be able to display only the data with a specific job number and I would like to be able to search this job number in a text input. For example:

 

JOB                   First Name                     Last Name

1                        John                              Smith

2                        Peter                             Smith

 

So in the Item properties of my Display Form I put the formula:

 

LookUp(TableName, JOB=TextInput3)

 

This gives an error, but if I put:

 

LookUp(TableName, JOB="1")

 

I get the proper information. But obviously can't change the job number while using the app.

 

How can I make this work by searching the job number by means of a text input or other input?
