Weird/unclear error message

I was able to get this figured out —but when trying

SELECT REPLACE(email, "@","<at>") FROM customers AS obfuscated_email;

I got the message Bummer: Expecting results like Lauren.Chalkley<at>example.com not Lauren.Chalkley<at>example.com.

Hey Tanya,

My best guess is that you are trying to alias the customers table and not what you are selecting. So if you move AS obfuscated_email up before FROM you should be good to go!
