I'm getting a "Bummer: There was an error with your code: SyntaxError: Parse error" in my challenge task

I'm getting a "Bummer: There was an error with your code: SyntaxError: Parse error" in my challenge task with the attached code. I can't see an issue with it and when I run the same code in the Treehouse Workspace, it works as expected. Can you spot what the issue is? Thanks!

script.js
let secret;

do {
 secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
} while ( secret !== "sesame"  )

document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

Hi Pamela,

just use var secret; instead of let secret; in the first line. Your loop is fine :-)
