Using a variable name as the name for output data

Hi all, I've created a very simple 'select' model (attached). The user types in a value and the model searches for all of the data within a field that equals that value, it selects those records, and then outputs a shapefile from the selected records.

How do I write my model so that the value the user types in is used as the name of my output shapefile? (I've tried using in line variable substitution but this doesn't appear to work).

Any advice greatly appreciated. Cheers, Damian
