How use DLookup on a report

I have a text box on a report and am trying to do a DLookup for it.  Here's is what I have in Control Source but it's not working.

=DLookUp("[CapCat]","tblCapacityCategory","[CapCat] =& [txtCapCat]")

 FYI, unless it's for some totally un-related data, you should avoid the use of Dlookup().  Instead, modify the query the report is based on and include the table(s) with the info you need.
