I am trying to set up a model that as part of the model will calculate a value for a text field by prompting the user to enter a value to be entered (using the Calculate Field tool. The prompt is for the user to type in a value rather than selecting from a list.

I can set the the Expression as a parameter but cannot seem to find a way to get the tool to prompt for a value. It is probably something basic that I am not doing, but the help and documentation I have seen is not making sense to me or at least does not work the way I think it should.
