Using the "users" table. Select the "email" column as all lower case and alias it as "lower_email"

Hi Matthew,

Assuming that this is the objective:


  • You'll want to use the LOWER function, so that the data from the email column appears lower cased in the results returned.

  • To alias the column (to rename the column, though only for the results returned), you'll need to use the AS keyword.

SELECT LOWER(email) AS "lower_email" FROM users;

Hope this helps!

Thank you CJ
