what is wrong with my code

I keep receiving an error for my code but it runs perfectly in my IDE.

Any bug I'm not seeing?

def splitsville(address):
    address = address.split(",")
    keys = ["street","city","state","zip_code"]
    all = dict(zip(keys,address))
    return all

Hey Regina Ackah, when splitting remember to account for space around punctuation. Are the dates truly comma separated or is it a comma-space?

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
