INSERT INTO - the challenge question keeps saying that they are expecting 11 entries, but there is only 10.

The same eCommerce database has a users table. It has the columns id, username, password, first_name, and last_name.

Add a new user to the users table. Use any valid values you want. All columns are required. The id column is auto incrementing.

(Don't enter a real password you'd really use!)

My answer is INSERT INTO users (id, username, password, first_name, last_name) VALUES (4, "hello", "hello123", "Jen", "Def");

The response I keep getting is that they are expecting 11 entries but I only have 10? Not sure what this means.

Hi Christin,

If you want your id to be auto-incrementing, you have to use NULL as your argument instead of 4.

Hope that helps!
