I am only just starting to use FileMaker seriously but I think this is a positional problem.
If you look at this example from the Script Manual you can see that the Show Custom Dialog command has the format
Show Custom Dialog [<title>; <message text>; Table1::input field 1;...]
so I think you are putting an input field were <message text> is expected.
Here is an example from the manual which may help
Show Custom Dialog ["New Customer"; "Enter information into the fields below:"; Customers::Company; Customers::Name; Customers::City]

There should be like this:
"Enter the two initials of account you want to import - e.g. JS" & UserInput::Input
