I don't quite understand that message, but there is a concatenation operator ("+") missing between "lastName" and the string following it.

Once of you fix that, the challenge will remind you that you need a different separator (": " instead of ",").

You are missing a + after lastName here:

let msg= firstName + ' ' + lastName ',' + role ;

In addition to this check your final string to see if it matches the format in the instructions

Thank you!
