There's no answer function, but when you have trouble you can always post your code here and folks will generally help you identify the problems.

But before you do that I can give you a few hints based on commonly seen issues in the forum:

  • the data must be concatenated in to a single string
  • the single string gets a column alias
  • the concatenation must include fields and literals to create proper spacing
  • the literals must also include the <> characters that go around the email address

Give it another shot with those in mind and post your code here if you still have trouble.
