You are almost there. The last line of our app.js file you don't have to create a new variable / 'var' you are just wanting to add/concatenate to the original 'userName' variable that you have already created in the 2nd to last line. You are needing to add '#' and the 'lastName' variable that is toUpperCase().

var userName = id.toUpperCase();
userName += '#' + lastName.toUpperCase();

Hope this helps.
