COMBINE TWO QUERIES

Does anyone know why I can run this queries?

SELECT "Student ID", "Student Name" FROM "STUDENT DATA"
WHERE "Crs No" = 10 UNION ALL SELECT * FROM RVM9525.course WHERE  
courseNo = 10

It's giving error massage: query block has incorrect number of result columns

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

RVM9525.course must have more than 2 columns

you are querying 2 columns from the first table
but you are unioning it to an unknown number of columns in the second table.

SELECT *

is returning more that 2 columns!
either change the * into 2 columns, or add some dummy (null) values in the first part

note: SELECT * should really not be used in UNION queries...
