Javascript: Record Collection Issue

Tell us what’s happening:
My code meets the requirement but the requirements are not validating my code. There use to be a report bug button but its gone now.

Your code so far

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

// Only change code below this line
function updateRecords(id, prop, value) {

if(prop != "tracks" && value !== "") {
  collection[id][prop] = value;
else if(prop == "tracks" && !collection[id].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
  let array = [];
  collection[id][prop] = array;
else if(prop == "tracks" && value !=="") {
else if(value === "" && !collection[id].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
  delete collection[id][prop];
else return;

return collection[id][prop];

// Alter values below to test your code
updateRecords(5439, "artist", "ABBA");

Challenge: Record Collection

Link to the challenge:

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.


what’s your function returning?

Your function must always return the entire collection object.

once fixed this, you will also find that you are missing a few test cases, if you need help with those, ask again
