What am i doing wrong here.

Challenge Task 2 of 2 We're back in our sports team database with the results table. The columns are id, home_team, home_score, away_team, away_score and played_on.

There are 30 days in September. Find all the games played in the results table in September 2015.

My Code

SELECT * FROM results WHERE played_on BETWEEN "2017-09-01" AND "2017-09-30";

Error i am getting

Bummer! You're missing the value of "2015-09-01"

Use single quotes instead of double: SELECT * FROM results WHERE played_on BETWEEN '2017-09-01' AND '2017-09-30';
