What am I missing here ?

Hey guys,

I am pretty sure my code is good, I tried it in my workspace, but still, I cannot pass the 1st step. I left comma and space out of the two groups. Even if I do "findall" instead of "search" I get good groups. What am I missing here?

emails.py
import re

string = '''Love, Kenneth, kenneth+challenge@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5555, @kennethlove
Chalkley, Andrew, andrew@teamtreehouse.co.uk, 555-555-5556, @chalkers
McFarland, Dave, dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5557, @davemcfarland
Kesten, Joy, joy@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5558, @joykesten'''

contacts = re.search(r"""
(?P<Email>[-\w.+]+@[\w.-]+),\s
(?P<Phone>\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4})
""",string, re.X|re.MULTILINE)

So close! A couple of minor typos. 'Email' and 'Phone' should not be capitalized. Try <phone> and <email>

You’re welcome. Challenges are very case sensitive. Especially with strings.
