load('seed.js') gives an error

I get an error when I try to load seed.js file by using the load("address/seed.js") command..

-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `"treehouse-mongo-basics/seed.js"'

I am using the correct address and not forgetting to include the address in quote marks.. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help!

Your syntax looks basically correct. Is that path name to your seed.js correct? From within a Mongo Shell you can check your current directory using the pwd() command and you might, therefore, need to alter your path information.

Post back with further questions and happy coding,
