Auto Populate Form Controls using Text Box

I need to auto Populate Form Controls based an Employee's ID.  I currently have this setup using the lookup function and it works great! 

Here is the article I used to setup this function:  https://jessemchargue.com/2020/01/31/how-to-auto-populate-form-controls-in-sharepoint-online-with-ni...

 

However, rather than having a user select their Employee ID from a dropdown, I would like them to have to type in their Employee ID in a text box, then have other form control auto population based on what the Employee typed in a text box.

Re: Auto Populate Form Controls using Text Box

You could accomplish what you're trying to do with Rules or Event Triggers, but having people manually typing a code out, opening you up to typos / incorrect data, creates a lot of extra work around the verification of said data. 

Is there a particular reason as to why the dropdown system doesn't work and requires this change?
