Im not sure why my query's not working... SELECT COUNT(*) AS jk_book_count FROM books WHERE author = "J.K Rowling";

Can someone tell me why this query's not working? Im pretty sure I did everything right.

I recieve the following error... Bummer! Your query didn't perform the correct count.

Hey, your SQL is valid, SQL is case sensitive, maybe check that your table and field names have the correct Case.

Though this would show a different error message.

You just have a typo. You left off the period after the "K" in "J.K. Rowling".

Ahh thanks Steven! You rock!
