Your code is correct you just copied over the period by mistake or accidentally used a period instead of a semi-colon

message = "Welcome admin".

should be

message = "Welcome admin";

Thanks for your help. I caught that right after I posted the question. That one really made me feel dumb!

It happens, no need to feel dumb. I'm a professional software engineer, and I still do that a lot.
