How to re-execute try statement after ValueError.

I was just curious as to how you could prompt the script to ask you again for the input values for the try statement after the except ValueError has been initiated. After I try to enter a value after the exception and print statement for the ValueError has occured it just exits me out of the script.

You could wrap the try/except code in a loop that repeats until an input is accepted.

Creating loops for just this kind of thing is covered further along in this same course stage!

Thanks! That helps
