Assistance with code error.

Point me in the right direction please.

The error that I am getting is "SQL Error: 1st ORDER BY term does not match any column in the result set"

The question: There are two tables Fruit and Vegetable table. The Fruit table has a FruitID and a Name column and the Vegetable table has a VegetableID and Name Column. Create an alphabetical list of produce that is considered both a fruit and a vegetable.

My code:

SELECT Name From Fruit Where Name INTERSECT SELECT Name FROM Vegetable WHERE Name ORDER BY ASC;

Hey Joshua, you haven't specified any columns after the ORDER BY clause. You probably meant to write "Name" after ORDER BY so that it reads "ORDER BY Name ASC".

Thanks but that didn't work. I received an error, "Your INTERSECT queries didn't bring back produce that is considered both a fruit and a vegetable."

Can you give me the link to the challenge?

I've never used INTERSECT before. Could you accomplish what you're trying to do by using an IN statement with a subquery? Like so:

SELECT Name
FROM Fruit
WHERE Name IN (SELECT Name
               FROM Vegetable)
ORDER BY Name ASC;
