Popular Data Science questions guided project SQL connect?

Screen Link: Learn data science with Python and R projects

My Code:

%%capture
%load_ext sql
%sql sqlite:///Stack Exchange Data Explorer
%%sql
SELECT Id, CreationDate, 
       Score, ViewCount, 
       Tags, AnswerCount, 
        FavoriteCount
FROM posts
WHERE PostTypeId = 1 AND CreationDate = 2019;

What I expected to happen:
Posts table

What actually happened:

(sqlite3.OperationalError) no such table: posts
[SQL: SELECT Id, CreationDate, 
       Score, ViewCount, 
       Tags, AnswerCount, 
        FavoriteCount
FROM posts
WHERE PostTypeId = 1 AND CreationDate = 2019;]
(Background on this error at: http://sqlalche.me/e/13/e3q8)

Do I need to add the code to connect SQL? I’ve added it but it still doesn’t work…

Although I haven’t done this mission yet, I believe we are meant to go to the Stack Exchange Data Explorer website in order to explore the dataset as is shown in the animated GIF.

I tried out your code above using the provided link and I did not get back any results. I had to remove part of your WHERE clause because CreationDate = 2019 was always False. Once I removed it, I got some results for the query.

EDIT_1:
In fact, the instructions on the following screen tell us explicitly that we should be using the SEDE:

  1. Run a query against the SEDE DSSE database that extracts the columns listed above for all the questions in 2019.

EDIT_2:
Now that I see this is actually an exercise on screen 4, I had to figure out how to get that part of your WHERE clause to work. It took this syntax to produce the desired results:

WHERE CreationDate LIKE '%2019%'
1 Like

I try the below code

SELECT Id, CreationDate,
       Score, ViewCount, Tags,
       AnswerCount, FavoriteCount
  FROM posts
 WHERE CreationDate LIKE '%2019%';

while it shows the error below:


  File "<ipython-input-11-8948c32445ff>", line 1
    SELECT Id, CreationDate,
            ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I can’t see anything wrong in the select columns…

Also, Mike, I’ve tried to upload guided projects to Github but fail… Anyone I can contact with?

Kind regards,
