You have the right idea - the reason it's throwing an error is that you refer to the 'count' variable as 'counter', which it won't recognize. If you change all three of your "counter" to "count", it should work!

Hi. It seems that the name in your variable does not match the name you've used for the rest of the statement. It should be either:

var count = 0;
while ( count < 26 ) {
  document.write(count);
  count += 1;
}

or:

var counter = 0;
while ( counter < 26 ) {
  document.write(counter);
  counter += 1;
}
