It is highly recommended to not post phone numbers or email address on the forum, to keep you from being solicited by bots and other scammers.

This piece seems to be touching on the topic of Scope (more info).

Scope comes in many flavors. To define your scope you could ask, what can your code access? What variables can it reach and use?

Everything your code can touch, is yourscope. It can be a confusing topic at first. Also , note that detailed and focused questions are a good way for allowing others to best address the parts you are having trouble with.

A Google search for JavaScript Scope would give a lot of examples and reads. I’ll list a few I like at the bottom.

Wikipedia - JavaScript Scope

MDN - Function Scope

W3Schools - JavaScript Scope
