What am I doing wrong? Why 'HAVING COUNT(1)>5' does not work?

Write a query to find out which managers have more than 5 people on their team. If you need to use a count, use 'COUNT(1)'.

SELECT MANAGERS.FIRST_NAME, MANAGERS.LAST_NAME
FROM MANAGERS
JOIN EMPLOYEES ON EMPLOYEES.MANAGER_ID = MANAGERS.ID
GROUP BY MANAGERS.ID 
HAVING COUNT(1)>5;

You might want to report this as a bug to Support.

Thanks, Steven!
