you need to use the charAt() method

alert(name.charAt(2));

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

	<title>11</title>
</head>
<body>
	<img src=image/MyNameIs.jpg />
	<br />


		<script type="text/javascript">
		name = prompt("your last name");
		name = name.toUpperCase();
		document.write( "Welkom " + name );



		number = parseInt (prompt("give a number"));
		document.write("<br>");

if you want to count the length of the text, then use name.length

This prints the length of the string

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

	<title>11</title>
</head>
<body>
	<img src=image/MyNameIs.jpg />
	<br />


		<script type="text/javascript">
		name = prompt("your last name");
		name = name.toUpperCase();
		document.write( "Welkom " + name );



		number = parseInt (prompt("give a number"));
		document.write("<br>");
		document.write(name.charAt(number-1));
	document.write("<br>");

	document.write(name.length);

        </script>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

	<br />


		<script type="text/javascript">
		name = prompt("your last name");
		name = name.toUpperCase();
		document.write( "Welkom " + name );



		number = parseInt (prompt("give a number"));
		document.write("<br>");
		document.write(name.substring(number));
	document.write("<br>");
