ORA-00923: FROM keyword not found where expected

 

Details of error are as follows.

ORA-00923 FROM keyword not found where expected


Cause: In a SELECT or REVOKE statement, the keyword FROM was either missing, misplaced, 
or misspelled. The keyword FROM must follow the last selected item in a SELECT statement 
or the privileges in a REVOKE statement.

Action: Correct the syntax. Insert the keyword FROM where appropriate. The SELECT list itself
 also may be in error. If quotation marks were used in an alias, check that double quotation
 marks enclose the alias. Also, check to see if a reserved word was used as an alias.
