It's expecting 4 entries, and I enter 4 entries

I created this query INSERT TO product VALUES (Null, "XX", "YY", 500)

And it tells me I only entered 3 values

Hi there,

You're very close but there's a few things to note with your query.

You need to target the products table rather than product. You also need to INSERT INTO the data rather than INSERT TO

Also since the id field value is auto increment, you don't need to specifiy it in your query. So any of these will work.

INSERT INTO products(name, description, price) VALUES ("XX", "YY", 500);
INSERT INTO products VALUES (null, "XX", "YY", 500);

I would also point out that this statement only adds one entry to the table. The table already has 3 entries, and the challenge is expecting you to add one more.

Each entry has four columns, which are the values being provided in the statement.
