Control Slider effect is missing error

Hey guys,

Edit: I figured out what I was doing wrong. I had to put the actual slider in the layer before I could reference it. Pretty dumb but I got it fixed

I'm pretty new to After Effects so my apologies if I am missing something obvious. But I am trying to create a slider to control a rectangle padding size relative to some text. I got the expression from EC Abrams.

This is what I get...

Error: Error: Effect name "Slider Control" is missing or does not exist.

Here is the code.

I am baffled as to what is wrong with this.

a=thisComp.layer("Text Layer").sourceRectAtTime();


p=effect("Slider Control")("Slider");
