Hey Abiel,

It's difficult for us to see where you're going wrong if you don't give us an example of the statement you entered.

I just had a bash at the code challenge and was able to pass it using the following SQL statement:

SELECT SUBSTR(first_name,1,1) AS "initial", last_name FROM customers;

Let us know what it was that was hindering you!

Hope this helps,
