I’m getting an error in the last step of this exercise and I can’t figure out why. The previous step had me copy and paste all the “INSERT” statements into this code and it originally included one more insert statement that I have since removed that was meant to purposely throw an error. Any help is appreciated.

‘isbn’ is the primary key for the ‘book’ table, and ‘book_isbn’ is the foreign key that relates to it from the ‘book_details’ table.

  id integer PRIMARY KEY,
  book_isbn varchar(50) REFERENCES book(isbn) UNIQUE,
  rating decimal,
  language varchar(10),
  keywords text[],
  date_published date

  constraint_name, table_name, column_name
  table_name = 'book_details';

  constraint_name, table_name, column_name
  table_name = 'book';

  'Learn PostgreSQL',
  'Great course',

INSERT INTO book_details VALUES (
  '{sql, postgresql, database}',

  book, book_details
  book.isbn = book_details.book_isbn;

I just now realized there is a “Show Solution” button. lol
It appears that the problem came from me deleting the aforementioned code, and also from me adding the code to check the primary key of the ‘book’ table.

Solution for last step using the method not given in the solution:

select book.title, book.price, book_details.language, book_details.rating
from book, book_details
where book.isbn = book_details.book_isbn

Why does the ‘license’ table have both columns ‘id’ (which is the primary key) and ‘license id’ ? Can’t the license id serve as the id in this table as it is unique and to avoid a redundant column?image
