Student search issues

For some reason that I cannot figure out, the prompt dialogue is not appearing. Does anyone know what could be the issue? Also when I copy the code here it puts all the code together.

var message = ''; var student; var search;

function print(message) { var outputDiv = document.getElementById('output'); outputDiv.innerHTML = message; }

for (var i = 0; i < students.length; i += 1) { student = students[i]; message += '<h2>Student: ' + student.name + '</h2>'; message += '<p>Track: ' + student.track + '</p>'; message += '<p>Points: ' + student.points + '</p>'; message += '<p>Achievements: ' + student.achievements + '</p>'; }

while (true) { search = prompt('Search for a student.'); if (search.toLowerCase() === 'quit') { break; } else if (search ==='list') { print (students); }

The code shown above references "students", but nothing by that name is defined.

I suggest you don't try to rush through the videos. Start from the beginning of this Chapter they explain everything very clearly. good luck!
