Need helping finding the Count of ordered_on today.

Curious what's wrong with my query. Feel like I'm close and either the COUNT is used wrong or something is off with the DATE function. Thanks

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM orders WHERE status = 'shipped' as "shipped_today" AND ordered_on = DATE("now");

Hi Spencer. Yes you are super close! I have a question. Does it make sense to alias a column in the WHERE clause? Wouldn't it be better to alias a column you are selecting? Hope this helps and good luck!
