Pipeline Filter doesn't work

Hi there, before I start I appreciate everyone who lends a hand. That being said, here is my problem. I am filtering a pipeline to give me stocks between 500 million and 2 billion market cap. However, the filter doesn't seem to work, as the output shows securities way over 2 billion.

Attached is my notebook and my code is below.
Here is my code:

from quantopian.pipeline import Pipeline  
from quantopian.research import run_pipeline  
from import morningstar  
from import Fundamentals  
million = 1000000000  
billion = 1000000000000

market_cap = morningstar.valuation.market_cap.latest  
low = market_cap > 500 * million  
high = market_cap < 2 * billion  
small_cap = low & high

pe = Fundamentals.forward_pe_ratio.latest  
my_pipe = Pipeline(  
        'market_cap': market_cap,  
        'fpe': pe,  
    screen= small_cap  

date = '8/31/2017'  
result = run_pipeline(my_pipe, date, date)  

Thank you for the help!

You have too many zeros...

million = 1000000000  
billion = 1000000000000

This should be...

million = 1000000  
billion = 1000000000

Thank you! It seemed too long so I tried it several times. I guess dumb me just made that same mistake 3 times...

I use the code in pycharm with zipline. The following line is not working. looks like there's no moringstar in the library at all. Please help
from import morningstar (I use 'from import morningstar')

Yi, I suggest you open a new post rather than reply to an old one.

Also, you'll get more help if you share the notebook or algorithm that has the error.

That said, my first guess is that your problem is an older API.
