Query that uses Textbox.value

I want my textbox input value of cleveland to control query parameter. I'm seeing the .value when I mouse over, but the query is not using the value in the textbox as the parameter. How can I make this work?

Is the whereFrom field a textInput field or something else?
This should work usually but wondering if you need ' and ' around the '{{parameter.value}} though this should not be the case....

It is a text input field. The text input field will show the .value:cleveland, but the query searchAirportwhereFrom will not use the input as a parameter value.

Can you provide more information as in what does the API Request look like, more code, etc.?

I can tell that I'm not getting the data[] from the API request. It asks for a parameter and I added a parameter variable into my query library. I'm figuring that if I just add a textbox input linking it to the parameter value it will use it for the the parameter value. From the rapidapi if I just type in the parameter I get all the data.

How have you set up the query in the GUI?
Can you share a larger screen shot with the complete configuration?

I haven't. I'm hoping not to create a table or store in table.

Sorry, I am only asking for a screenshot of the complete GUI configuration of the API you are trying to run

sorry that was the wrong query. It's updated now.

Does this screenshot help? If I type the variable, the data will load in the library.

Thanks for putting my nose in it. I had the variable named wrong. I was trying to link the variable with the textbox input component before actually naming the variable. ugh smh. Thanks again
