You have the right idea, but there's a few issues yet:

  • there's no "address" field to select from
  • field names don't need to be enclosed in quote marks
  • only one alias can be applied to the entire concatenated string
  • the instructions say "Alias the concatenated string as address"
  • there should be no punctuation between the state and zip
  • the punctuation between zip and country should be period (.) instead of comma (,)
