Basic JavaScript - Record Collection

Tell us what’s happening:
I have been having trouble with this specific problem for about 1.5 week. After coming back to it via several different angles, I finally decided to check the hints, which were a description of exactly what I was doing. Looking at the solutions just made me more desperate (/lh), because I realized it was very similar code. Finally, I resorted to copying the solution code to the letter, and I still didn’t pass the tests.

Given that, I think it’s pretty safe to assume that this is somehow a browser problem, but I don’t know for sure. Did anyone have a similar problem?? Is there some fault in my code that I just can’t see?? Any help is appreciated!

Your code so far

// Setup
const recordCollection = {
  2548: {
    albumTitle: 'Slippery When Wet',
    artist: 'Bon Jovi',
    tracks: ['Let It Rock', 'You Give Love a Bad Name']
  2468: {
    albumTitle: '1999',
    artist: 'Prince',
    tracks: ['1999', 'Little Red Corvette']
  1245: {
    artist: 'Robert Palmer',
    tracks: []
  5439: {
    albumTitle: 'ABBA Gold'

// Only change code below this line
function updateRecords(records, id, prop, value) {
  if (value = "") {
    delete records[id][prop];
  } else if (prop !== "tracks" && value !== "") {
    records[id][prop] = value;
  } else if (prop === "tracks" && value !== "") {
      if (records[id].hasOwnProperty("tracks") === false) {
        records[id][prop] = [];
  return records;

updateRecords(recordCollection, 5439, 'artist', 'ABBA');

You copied this part of the answer incorrectly. That’s not an uncommon issue when copying answers.

Oh my god! I knew there had to be something. Thanks a lot for pointing that out :smiley:
