JavaScript

function challenge not working

I'm on the last section of JavaScript Basics, and the second task of the first challenge in the functions section keeps giving me an error message that the first task is not passing. Any suggestions on what is wrong with this code?

function sayHi(){ alert (sayHi); }

What course, and what challenge (name them or provide a link)?

But I'm guessing at the very least, the content of the alert needs to be quoted:

function sayHi(){ alert ("sayHi"); }

Yup, that was the ticket - thanks! I'm currently on a public computer that uses IE and won't let me get to Chrome, so the link to the course won't work today. It's JavaScript Basics, creating a function challenge.
