n an ecommerce database there's a addresses table. There is an id, nickname, street, city, state, zip, country and user_id columns.

Concatenate the street, city, state, zip and country in the following format. Street, City, State Zip. Country e.g. 34 NE 12 st, Portland, OR 97129. USA

Alias the concatenated string as address

This is my code here, as I don't see it attached select street || "," || " " || city, || "," || " " || state || " " || zip || "." || " " || country as address from addresses

Why won't this work?????????????

You were very close! But there should not be a comma after the field name "city".
