It is possible that you’re running python hello.py on a different file than the one with the “Ada” edits in it?

Try renaming the “Ada” file to “hello_ada.py” then running python hello_ada.py

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Hi, thank you!

Today I solved it by keeping the file name python hello.py the same but saving all the code I make before running it in the console.

Great!! It's a good practice to start organizing your files now and getting use to renaming files. Hopefully, you be making many hundreds more .py files in the future!!
