    Exclamation string identifier symbol not found

    I am new to java. I am working with this one .java file shown here, and for some reason the identifier location is not a found symbol

    import java.lang.String;
     
     
    class FishSpot
    {
    	public static void main (String args[])
    	{
    		String locaton;
    		location = "Corson's Inlet";
    		if (location != "") 
    			System.out.print("Fishing Spot: " + location);
     
    	}
    }

    and here's the error message when compiling with javac in command prompt:

    C:\Program Files\Java\src\com\scjaexam\ex2_4>javac Pseudo2_4.java
    Pseudo2_4.java:10: cannot find symbol
    symbol : variable location
    location: class FishSpot
    location = "Corson's Inlet";
    ^
    Pseudo2_4.java:11: cannot find symbol
    symbol : variable location
    location: class FishSpot
    if (location != "")
    ^
    Pseudo2_4.java:12: cannot find symbol
    symbol : variable location
    location: class FishSpot
    System.out.print("Fishing Spot: " + location);
    ^
    3 errors
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    This is a fun spot the difference game in real life. A quick spell check will tell you what's wrong, if you haven't gotten this worked out yet.
