Could you post the code you are trying, please.

Or better, link directly from the challenge using the "Get Help" button and make sure the "Attach my code to this post." is checked. This will link directly to the challenge / quiz and will include and format your code, which makes it easier for us to help troubleshoot.

I think you need to reread the question. Your code appears to have correct SQL syntax and it should not generate an error code by itself. Therefore, you likely are overlooking a portion of the question and/or not supplying what the question is looking for.

Either way, we can't check this for you because you didn't notate which challenge you're working on nor what the question is. Please post the question as a reply and forum partakers can help out.
