Default I don't understand this error message...

I'm doing the exercices in the "FusionPro VDP Creator Rules Guide" and I have a problem with the "Employee ID badges" page 104.
When I try to validate the rule that "call" the images, I get this message on the first line (Pic = CreateResource(Field("Last") + ".jpg", graphic) "ReferenceError: graphic is not defined"
I don't understand as I have entered the line exactly as it is in the manual (except that I have .jpg files instead of .tif)
As I'm "junior" in JavaScript, can someone tell me why I do have this error ?

you can see a screen capture here :

You need quotes around "graphic". The function takes a string; you're passing it a variable named graphic instead. Try this:
Pic =  CreateResource(Field("Last") + ".jpg",  "graphic");

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
