Use the JavaScript .toUpperCase( ) string method to assign an all uppercase version of the id variable to the userName v

app.js
var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id;
console.log(id.toUpperCase());

Hello, James

You're close! The challenge is asking you to assign the result of toUpperCase to the variable userName. In your code, you're using console.log instead of assigning the value to userName.

You can remove the console.log call and instead call toUpperCase on id in the line above it.

I hope this helps.
