What is the correct syntax here?

Calculation returned 14 where the quiz also answered as 14. The question asked for total number ordered yesterday. My syntax: SELECT COUNT(ordered_on) AS shipped_yesterday FROM orders WHERE status = "shipped" AND ordered_on = DATE("now", "-1 day");

Where is the error?

(cannot progress lesson without correct answer)

The challenge is asking you to - The challenge is asking for Count the total number of orders that were ordered yesterday and have the status of 'shipped'. Alias it to ordered_yesterday_and_shipped.

Is your alias correct?

Also, it is common to use count(*) when counting rows.
