Databases Reporting with SQL Working with Text Replacing Strings


I am super confused on what to do, the help suggestion is the same as what I have done.

**The challenge* In the customers table there's an email column. Write a query that will retrieve all email addresses but will replace the @ symbol with <at> so they all look like andrew<at>teamtreehouse.com.

Alias it as obfuscated_email .

Type in your command below, then press Ctrl-Enter. *The confusing hint* Bummer: Expecting results like Lauren.Chalkley<at>example.com not Lauren.Chalkley<at>example.com.

*My code

SELECT REPLACE (email, "@", "<at>") AS obfusctaed_email FROM customers;

You have a typo: obfusctaed_email should be obfuscated_email. That hint made no sense though because Lauren.Chalkley<at>example.com is indeed equal to Lauren.Chalkley<at>example.com.
