I can't get this to run: it always questions whether I've added # between id and lastName,

If I'm doing something wrong can you help please as I can't see what it could be

var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";
var userName = id + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<script src="app.js"></script>

Hey Fergus,

"id.toUpperCase()" should be a part of the concatenation being done for the "userName" variable:

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

My pleasure! :)
