try this code:

SELECT * FROM movies ORDER BY release_year ASC, title ASC;

Nope it is still giving this error. Your query is not ordering 'movies' by release 'year' and then by 'title'.

Your original answer is correct, I don't know why it would not be scored properly unless you had a typo while entering it. I'm a big proponent of the KISS principle ("Keep It Simple, Student!"). And since ascending is the default sort order, I would just shorten it to:

SELECT * FROM movies ORDER BY year, title;

This isn't any more correct than what you had, but the less you type, the less likely you are to get a typo.
