How are you running the file?

“cannot document the following expression” sounds like you’re trying to look up the documentation for it?

I am just running the code using Visual Studio Code software with Julia as language.

Sure. But literally, what buttons did you press/commands did you run to execute the file?

I typically work with the Julia REPL, and execute files using include:
https://jump.dev/JuMP.jl/dev/tutorials/getting_started/getting_started_with_julia/#The-Julia-REPL

Yes the button which says, Julia: Execute active file in REPL

What are the lines above line 24? Do you have a block like:

"""
Here is a commennt
"""
using PathSolver

It looks like Julia is trying to add a docstring to using PATHSolver

Welcome! These reports are actually very helpful, because it made me realize that we don’t cover comments, multiline comments, or multiline strings in our Getting started with Julia · JuMP tutorial.

I opened a PR to improve the documentation: [docs] add comments and multiline strings to getting_started_with_julia by odow · Pull Request #3085 · jump-dev/JuMP.jl · GitHub.

Let me know if you come across any other stumbling blocks, or have suggestions for improvements to the docs.
