Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
This code answer I provided works well in my Playground yet here I am told to check for correct variable assignment.
let name = "Tom Walker" let greeting = "Hi there (name)"
This works in my Playground but doesn't in the programming test section for string manipulation. What gives?
// Enter your code below let name = "Tom Walker" let greeting = "Hi there \(name)"
Your correct I overlooked the strictness factor in this case. Thanks for taking the time to assist me.

Hi there! You're doing great, but challenges are extremely strict. The bummer message you are getting is asking if you assigned the correct string. And you didn't. The string it's asking for contains a comma. It should be:
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)" // note the addition of the comma after "there"
Generally speaking, when challenges are checking for strings they must be correct to the letter. This includes punctuation, capitalization, and even spacing.
Hope this helps! .
