this works try that

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

Bummer: The userName variable is "23188XTR" not "23188XTR#SMITH". it gives me this whenever i put in var username=(id.toUpperCase());+"#"+(lastName.toUpperCase());

(id.toUpperCase());+"#"+(lastName.toUpperCase()); is wrong beacouse you are using two simicolon(;)

id.toUpperCase( )+ "#"+lastName.toUpperCase( ); this wright there is only one simicolon at the end and this works try it again
