Below is a basic query command, selecting 3 columns (name, genre, year) from the table ‘movies’. Why is ‘year’ blue even though it’s referring to a column we are selecting? I’ve so far only seen blue words = clauses.
Lol you’re great. Thanks! So basically, in SQL if it’s a keyword it’s blue?
In the Codecademy learning environment, yes. If you use other text editors/other SQL parsing/writing software, the keywords might be coloured differently.
Got it. So same concept of highlighted keywords, but different software will use different colors to highlight.
Bottom line, SQL will never show us RED. It only gives polite warnings.
