In order to pass this challenge you have to put the variables together with a # mark in-between them; also you need to call the to upper case function on each variable. You add them together use the + sign. I hope this helps! good luck coding!

var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";
var userName = id.toUpperCase() + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();

I haven't made it to that lesson but this code makes userName = 23188XTR#SMITH

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

var userName = id + '#' + lastName;

userName = userName.toUpperCase();
