Code check.

What am I doing wrong? Below is the example code in the previous video, and below that is my version for this challenge.

SELECT street, city, REPLACE(state, "California", "CA"), zip FROM addresses WHERE REPLACE(state, "California", "CA") = "CA";

SELECT REPLACE(email, "@", "<a>") FROM customers WHERE REPLACE(email, "@", "<a>") = "<a>" AS obfuscated_email;

You're pretty close, but:

  • this code is replacing "@" with "<a>", but the challenge asked for "<at>" (with a "t")
  • the alias must come right after the replace function (and before FROM)
  • the challenge wants all the addresses so you don't need any filter (WHERE)
SELECT REPLACE(email, "@", "<at>") AS obfuscated_email FROM customers;
