STRFTIME function is not returning correct answer.

Question -

In a movies database we have a movies table. It has the columns of id, title, date_released and genre. Write a query that returns the title first and the month and year it was released alias as month_year_released. Dates should look like "04/1983" for April 1983.

Answer -

Select title, STRFTIME("%M/%Y", date_released) as month_year_released from movies;

This is not correct as per the teamtreehouse. The month column is returning 00 values for all the titles, year is coming correct.

Select Title, STRFTIME("%m/%Y", date_released) as month_year_released from movies;

Use small letter m for the month.

Should look like this, with a lowercase m and an uppercase Y

SELECT title, STRFTIME('%m/%Y', date_released) as month_year_released
FROM movies;
