error messages are useless

Whoever programmed this course made terrible error messages. I have no idea what my query is returning and all I see is "there is something wrong with your query." Great.

Show your complete query code here and perhaps someone can identify the issue.

The database stuff is a little tricky, but I've found that the people here are damn good at what they do and can help solve the probelm. Also, if you don't get the help you want from the forum, you can usually email the help desk and they circle in a moderator/teacher to help you out.

At least that's how I made it through some of this stuff!

Hope it helps, Chris

Yeah I clicked "include my code" and apparently that didn't work.

Just edit the question and type it in, or add it in a comment.

To include the code...three back ticks (that's shift and the key to the left of 1 and under the escape key). Copy code under ticks in body, then three more ticks under copied code. See if you can do it now.
