ORA-00922: missing or invalid option

ORA-00922 missing or invalid option

Cause: An invalid option was specified in defining a column or storage clause. 
The valid option in specifying a column is NOT NULL to specify that the column cannot
 contain any NULL values. Only constraints may follow the datatype. Specifying a maximum
 length on a DATE or LONG datatype also causes this error.

Action: Correct the syntax. Remove the erroneous option or length specification from the
column or storage specification.
