code challenge retrieving a result set.


"From the actors table select the name column using the long form version of the column name i.e. table name followed by the column name."

my code

select actors. name from actors;


"Bummer! You're missing the correct column notation i.e. table_name.column_name."

I can not figure out where I'm going wrong, if someone could shed some light on my mistake please.

I'm not sure what Code Challenge this is from, but it looks like there is a space between the actors. and the name column. Should it say select actors.name from actors; ?

many thanks Cory, it done the trick.

SELECT actors.name FROM actors;
