Hey Tony!

You are almost there, now, if you pay attention to the task, it's asking you to user .toUpperCase() at the last name aswell because it want's the final value of userName to be 23188XTR#SMITH. So it looks something like this:

var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase() + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();

Since it is asking you to have the lastName to be upper cased as well, you need to use the .toUpperCase() method too just like how you did with the var id.

var userName = id.toUpperCase() + '#' + lastName.toUpperCase();

Cheers thank you guy's! :)
