Instead of naming the variable you wanted to change, you had named the function you're using that is you were meant to say:

var userName = id.toUpperCase();

so that a Upper case version of id is assigned to username.

Right now saying str.toUpperCase(); makes the computer look for a variable named "str". You had to substitute the variable name. Hope this helps, mufesi wangu.
