A bit new to Oracle.  Any thoughts on why this query is unhappy?

SELECT
VALUE_DT,
SYSTEM_REF,
SENDER_LINE1,
SENDER_LINE2 || SENDER_LINE3 || SENDER_LINE4 || SENDER_LINE5 AS 'SENDER_LINE_CON'
FROM schema.tablename
WHERE ROWCONT <=10

If you want only 10 results, use ROWNUM pseudo-column.

SELECT
VALUE_DT,
SYSTEM_REF,
SENDER_LINE1,
SENDER_LINE2 || SENDER_LINE3 || SENDER_LINE4 || SENDER_LINE5 AS 'SENDER_LINE_CON'
FROM schema.tablename
WHERE ROWNUM <=10;
