Can I see the page_visits.csv file somewhere so I can see what the raw data looks like?

How do I get past the second part of this module? I ran the query, can see the data but how do I answer the questions in section 2? Not exactly the best learning experience, with a problem like this in the first interactive session!


hey I just had the exact same problem, so I started scrolling and clicking some things. If you click “run” for the second time, you finish the second assignment. Very silly but I hope this way you can proceed =)


After performing the first exercise which gives me the results of people visiting the city, the instruction didn’t turn green.
what am I doing wrong?

Is there any lesson from the data showing the number of people who came into Ridgeville?

Hello my name is Joshua. I copied and pasted SELECT * FROM page_visits; to the applicable window and the insuructions didn’t turn green. Whats the next step? Im going back onto the programming page to take another look at it. I feel like im lissing something.
