Quick controls midi learn Cubase 7

Hi I’m trying to midi learn a knob on the built in channel strip to my midi controller knob for some automation effects. . I right clicked and hit send to quick controls slot and I can’t find a way to automate it! The automation opened up in a new track but the track isn’t numbered. It looks like a tab it’s indented in a bit below the main track.i know it’s the automation because when I turn the channel strip knob with my mouse, the automation line goes up and down.
Anyways I have no freakin clue where to start and I can’t find anything online that’s direct on how to make this work. I also just learned about quick controls so I’m probably missing something simple but I can’t figure it out.
