Android Android Data Persistence Introduction to Data Persistence Handling an Exception

Need help with this code pliz

The code below has the potential to throw an exception. Wrap this code in a try/catch so it can gracefully react to an exception. Catch the generic Exception to cover all types of exceptions. In the catch block, call printStackTrace() using the exception parameter

CodeChallenge.java
// assetManager, assetName, and fileToWrite have been initialized elsewhere
try{
InputStream in = assetManager.open(assetName);
FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(fileToWrite);
copyFile(in, out); 
}
catch(Exeption e){
  printStackTrace();}

You want to call printStackTrace() on the exception object:

e.printStackTrace();

Also, you spelled Exception wrong :)
