Databases Reporting with SQL Date and Time Functions Calculating Dates

Wrong count calculation


I just miss two test to complete the course, unfortunately I have been stuck to this question a long time without getting what I do wrong

my formula is select count(*) as "ordered_yesterday_and_shipped" from orders where status = "shipped" and date("2021-05-23", "-1 day") When I tried it even on the SQL playground is giving me back 149 results, seems to me I am doing something wrong with the date, even I watched the video times and times I cannot find what I did wrong!

You are so close! Try using 'now' instead of the exact date. Also, you need to name your ordered_on column and set that equal to the date function.
