Filter dataview in sharepoint desinger 2007

hi,

can someone help me with this.

i made a dataview for my wss 3 site using sharepoint designer 2007.
i want to use a parameter that let the user enter a value that show the data corresponding to the value the user entered.
for example: the user enter in a textbox a user code 34. and the dataview display all the information corresponding to the user code 34

how can i do this in sharepoint designer?

Use a Filter View Web Part to get the required parameter.

Then set your Data View Web Part to receive filter values from the Filter View Web Part that you just added, and choose the appropriate column to filter on.

Hope this helps!
