the challenge is unclear

I have this challenge: Group all reviews by "movie_id" and get the average "score" and alias it as "average".

This is my answer: SELECT AVG(score) AS average FROM movies GROUP BY movie_id;

And i get this message: SQL Error: Unknown column 'score' in 'field list'

The challenge says: Group all reviews by "movie_id" and get the average "score" and alias it as "average".

:point_right: Note that the table name is reviews, not movies.

The database also contains a movies table, but that one has no score column.

I think that answer is correct. I'm making one or 2 assumptions here that the fields are correct.

I had an issue earlier when I attempted to copy a line of SQL code from one line that passed a task, to another because the questions were similar. The other challenge wouldn't pass even though it was right.

In order to pass, I had to manually type out the answer again. So however "painful" it might be try this again for your question and see it passes. It could easily be a challenge bug. :-)

Hi Jonathan, I had similar problems in the past. Unfortunately this is not the case I typed manually few times I got the same error.
