I am learning to write sql scripts and I am getting the following error and I am not sure why?

      ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax;

  The script (attached is very simple).  I ran a similar script from my text and had no issues.  But when I tried to edit the script for my purposes I keep getting this error.  My script and a screen shot of the error are attached.

You need to remove the final comma before the closing parenthesis in the table creation statements.  They should be:

CREATE TABLE Users
(
   UserID int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   Firstname varchar(20) NOT NULL,
   Lastname varchar(20) NOT NULL,
   EmailAddress varchar(20) NOT NULL,
   Username varchar(20) NOT NULL,
   Password varchar(20) NOT NULL
);

CREATE TABLE Urls
(
   UserID int NOT NULL,
   URL varchar(45) NOT NULL,
   FOREIGN KEY (UserID) REFERENCES Users(UserID)
);
