do while loop login problem

Not sure what I am doing wrong here , keep getting message I need to declare the variable before the loop otherwise the variable will be recreated everytime the loop runs. just need the prompt to run while the password is not sesame?

script.js
var secret = " ";
do { var secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
   }
while ( secret !== "sesame" ) ;
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

You're really close, but you only need "var" on the first line where the variable is created. Inside the loop, it's just a plain assignment (so no "var").

You also don't need to assign anything to it the first time, but that won't affect the challenge.
