HAHAHA I think we al know the feeling! No worries! That's what the forum is for. Happy coding!

You are really close! just add "+" after the string "#" and you should be good. Remember adding the plus symbol "+" is necessary before or after any new item that you want to concatenate .

Thank you Jacob - I was nearly going mad - very close to getting the baseball bat to the computer!
