Trouble with Running SQL in Workspace.


I'm having trouble with my workspace when following the steps as in the video to build up some muscle memory. However, when I run the script I get an error like this: Error: UNIQUE constraint failed: books.title. I notice in the table that I insert that the information has already been inserted. Is this problem occurring because that specified information is already in there? (I doubt that since the new command would just overwrite the information.)


Little late i know, but what is happening is you are trying to add the same data twice. So it comes back with an error. It wont return a query when inserting data so you probably didnt notice it, but the data was added. Assuming that nothing happened, like i did lol, you press it again and this time it returns the error saying that the data can not be added because it is not UNIQUE.
