Background Image no Repeat

I have tried placing a background on my page using HTML, the image shows up but repeats so I am trying to put a code into my css file but then the image doesnt show up at all, can anyone help please?

this is my css code

body {background-image: url(; background-repeat: no-repeat;}


I assumes the image exists because that url gives a 404.

Otherwise your code should be working as far as I can see although you could use shorthand to make it more concise:

background: url(background.jpg) no-repeat;}

It seems to be working now anyway:

thank you yes it is working now, thank for your help
