Databases SQL Basics Finding the Data You Want Searching Tables with 'WHERE'

Can't get this to work!


In our e-commerce database we have a users table with the columns id, username, password, first_name and last_name. Write a SQL query that retrieves the first and last names only where the username is equal to "wig_lady".

WHAT I'VE DONE: SELECT first_name, last_name WHERE username = "wig_lady";

And it won't work.

You haven't specified the table you are selecting your records from. Try:

SELECT first_name, last_name FROM users WHERE username = "wig_lady";
