Usually when the challenge says to "select all columns", it's a hint that you should use the "SELECT *" wildcard instead of specific column names.

Try that, and if that's not it show your complete query code here so we can take a look and give a more precise answer.

That is what was needed (the * instead of each column name). Thank you, Steven.
