I am not sure how to add the "#"symbol to the id variable. I am also not getting the lastName to be in all caps.

I am not sure how to add the "#" to the end of the id variable.

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

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

Hi Matt,

You have to put the # symbol between the uppercase versions of the id and last name in the userName variable using the concatenation operator, the + symbol, so you don't have to put it in the id variable.

Also, don't put semicolon after "id.toUpperCase()". You have to put it at the end of the statement only.
