document.write is the correct command but it doesn't take it

I can't get it to take document.write or the complete statement.

Hi Sam,

There are 2 text inputs there separated by the dot.

Are you putting "document" in the first one and "write" in the second one?

Hi there,

document.write("Hello World!");

What are you trying to achieve? Check console in inspect Element and find the error where is a mistake.

Accessing the DevTools To access the DevTools, open a web page or web app in Google Chrome. Either:

Select the Chrome menu Chrome Menu at the top-right of your browser window, then select Tools > Developer Tools. Right-click on any page element and select Inspect Element. The DevTools window will open at the bottom of your Chrome browser.
