Please fix the bug with this exercise! I cannot complete the data science path because it will not accept an answer for the PARTITION BY query. I replaced with View Solution, still throws “Type the code in the code editor using the appropriate function.” error I reported the bug, but no response. This whole section was super buggy, but this last one will not complete at all. It’s the third one @ that URL that will not turn green.

For clarity, I have attached a photo showing my code alongside the suggested code solution for this section:

The same happened to me. There are many other bugs on this site. Just canceled my subscription. Too much money for a service with so many bugs.

Hi all,

I’ve had a response and the engineers have pushed a fix for the exercise today.

Everyone give it a go again and it should accept the correct answer now, it’s worked for me!
