I need to do a lookup of a account number. I want to use a input box.
Looking for and example to use my adoquery1 to move the dbgrid to the correct record that matches my input box values.
table:= CustomerInfo
Field:=  Account Number.
my sql.text is select * from CustomerInfo.
var
  value : string;
 
begin
  // Keep asking the user for their town
  repeat
    value := InputBox('Test program', 'Please type your town', 'Cardiff');
  until value <> '';
 
  // Show their name
  ShowMessage('Your town is '+value);

Here are a couple other suggestions:  (Spaces and single quotes are important so note them).

Also, the verb 'Like' can be '=' for an exact match..

procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 ADOQuery1.Close;
 ADOQuery1.SQL.Clear;
 ADOQuery1.SQL.Add('Select * From CustomerInfo where AccountNumber Like :SrchStr');
 ADOQuery1.Parameters[0].Value := '%'+ Value + '%';
 ADOQuery1.Open;
end;

or...

procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 ADOQuery1.Close;
 ADOQuery1.SQL.Clear;
 ADOQuery1.SQL.Add('Select * From CustomerInfo where AccountNumber Like '+ QuotedStr(Value));
 ADOQuery1.Open;
end;

Is the AccountNumber field spelled correctly?

Access is interpreting AccountNumber as a parameter not a fieldname which probably means that this field has a different spelling.

And last, try:

datamodule2.ADOQuery1.SQL.Add('Select * From CustomerInfo where AccountNumber Like ' + Value);

Sometimes I get confused on when a quoted string in an SQL Query is needed when piecing together strings.
