JavaScript AJAX Basics (retiring) AJAX Concepts Finish the AJAX Request

AJAX Concepts Challenge task 1 of 2

var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
request.onreadystatechange = function () {
  if (request.readyState === 4) {
    document.getElementById("footer").innerHTML = request.responseText;

xhr.open('GET', footer.html);

Trying to open AJAX request using above. It's not passing the challenge. Can anybody give me a hint? Thanks

There is only a naming issue. Use request instead of xhr and add quotes around to footer.html like below

request.open('GET', 'footer.html');

I figured it out. I feel like an idiot. Thank you though.
