             ELSE "no"
         END AS "album_purchase"
     FROM invoice_first_track ifs
    )
GROUP BY album_purchase;

I do not see what ifs.* is here?

I believe if you have gotten this far you know what aliases and wildcards are. The following step should be to find the table that has been aliased to ifs.

hope this helps :slight_smile:
