can some one please give me the solution?

In an ecommerce database there's an orders table with the columns id, product_id, user_id, address_id, ordered_on, status and cost. Count the total number of orders that were ordered today and have the status of 'shipped'. Alias it to shipped_today.

You should make a query something like: SELECT [use the count function here] AS [alias] FROM orders WHERE ordered_on = [use DATE function] AND status = 'shipped';

Hopefully this helps!

This is the solution:

SELECT COUNT(*) AS shipped_today FROM orders WHERE ordered_on = DATE('now') AND status = "shipped"

When you are having trouble, i'd suggest you post your code for previous attempts so that the community can help you troubleshoot rather than just giving the answer - working through the problem this way is what helped these concepts stick for me anyway!
