Help with the using strong methods.

It asks me to create a final version with id + lastname in capital letters with a '#' between both elements. I checked the video twice and I do not find the "error"

var id = "23188xtr#";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id + '#' + lastName;
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

It seems you've added the "#" directly into your first variable. Make sure to leave the first variable untouched and then concatenate the strings. Also, while you've used the .toUpperCase() method on your userName variable, that doesn't save the variable as uppercase. It would be better to use the .toUpperCase method on both your id and lastName variables while putting your strings together.

In the end, you'll want something like userName = id.toUpperCase() + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();
