Databases Reporting with SQL Working with Text Replacing Strings

SELECT REPLACE(email, "@" "<at>") AS "obfuscated_email" FROM customers; What am I missing here?

I have written and rewritten this line several ways. I can't land on anything that pleases the syntax lords.

Hi there, Talon Ward! You're doing great and have clearly understood the idea. As for what you're missing? In a word: a comma. You're missing a single comma.

You typed:

(email, "@" "<at>")

But there should be a comma between the field name, the thing you're replacing, and the thing you're replacing it with. So you need:

(email, "@", "<at>")

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
