It may just be a typo.

Without seeing the course, this is a bit of a guess; but perhaps "Person" needs to be spelled with a capital "P"?

To enable the most accurate answers, always post a link to the course page you are working with.

You might also want to move this question to the "Databases" topic category.

the syntax is

UPDATE phone_book SET first_name = "Mystery" , last_name = "Person";

Sorry, I meant "Databases" topic.

And Ahmmad's line differs from yours where you wrote "person" (lower case "p") he has "Person" (capital "P").
