Unexpected error in inserting data into the "actors" table

Hi there, in the Database Foundations course, at the end of the first chapter, there's this code challenge for inserting data, where we have to insert 2 data into 2 different tables. The first one goes just fine. The second one, with the "actors" table is also exactly the same. It asks the following:

In the "actors" table INSERT a new actor with the name "Michael J. Fox".

Of which, I believe the answer is

INSERT INTO actors VALUES("Michael J.Fox");

However this piece of code is showing error, consistently. Can someone point me out my mistake here?

Hello, Aquib. Looks like you just need a space in the name, e.g.,

INSERT INTO actors VALUES("Michael J. Fox");

Oh missed that. Thanks a lot Dustin :)
