Fizz Buzz with value from user

I wanted to see if I can create the Fizz Buzz output based on a number entered by the user.

I can get it to work counting down:

var getNumber = prompt("How many numbers do you want to test?");

for (i = getNumber; i > 0; i--) {
    if (i%3==0 && i%5==0) {
        console.log(i, "fizzbuzz");
    } else if (i%3==0) {
        console.log(i, "fizz");
    } else if (i%5==0) {
    } else{

I'm can't get it to display the results in ascending order, and I'm sure I am missing something very simple.

Any help with be great. Thanks

Your are implementing a loop that does output in descending order, starting from getNumber and decreasing to zero. You want to move the other way:

for (var i = 1; i <= getNumber; i += 1) {
  // code as usual

Thanks, that did it.
