In the video for the lecture on importing and exporting data, there is a minor error on the slide shown around the 3:45 mark. The mongoimport command is shown to have an argument “–drop=.json”, but later on when the command is actually used, the equal sign is omitted and the “–drop=.json” argument is correctly split into two separate arguments.
Hi @Michael_Goodwin, welcome to the community.
Thanks for reporting this.
While the slide definitely has some inconsistency in the explanation and the example, for the record both of them will work perfectly fine. You can add the
equal sign(=) if you want or you can completely skip it as per your convenience.
In case you have any doubts, please feel free to reach out to us.
Thanks and Regards.
