Below is the objective and my response. The error on the objective is saying it is expecting a name, then shows what I am creating and it looks identical. Any advice and if I am far off can you explain please. Thank you.
In an ecommerce database there's a customers table with id, username, first_name, last_name, password, email and phone columns.
Create a report from the customers table that shows their first initial of their first name and alias it as initial. Select their last name too.
SELECT SUBSTR(first_name,"1","1") || " " AS initial, last_name FROM customers;
