Getting the following error message: Bummer: Expecting results like 'L Chalkley' not 'L Chalkley'. What is going on?

Title says it all. Am I getting the right result in the wrong way or what exactly?

It sure looks like the right data, so the problem is most likely how it's organized. I'd bet the issue is either:

  • the wrong number of columns (2 are expected)
  • the wrong column names (they should be "initial" and "last_name")

If that's not it, post your complete query code so I can take a look and be more specific.

Need to see your code to determine the issue on this one.
