Getting error in console

I've checked many times and I'm sure my code is the same as in video but in console I get this error: "GET http://port-80-egztads0hy.treehouse-app.com/data/empoyees.json 404 (Not Found)". My code:

var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();

xhr.onreadystatechange = function () {

  if(xhr.readyState === 4) {


xhr.open('GET', 'data/empoyees.json');

Hi Lena,

You have a minor typo in your url, empoyees.json should be employees.json as you don't have an l in there, the working URL is as below.


Happy coding!
