Doesn't seem like you are missing any parenthesis to me, but maybe I am also missing something.  This shouldn't matter, but you can try it by removing some of the extra spaces/breaks between variable names and its complete definition.
CREATE TABLE CUSTOMER(

	CUSTOMER_NO NUMBER(8,0) NOT NULL CONSTRAINT CUSTOMER_PK PRIMARY KEY(CUSTOMER_NO),                

	CUSTOMER_NAME VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL, 

	CUSTOMER_TYPE CHAR(1) CONSTRAINT CUST_TYPE CHECK (CUSTOMER_TYPE IN ('B', 'C', 'S')),

	ATTENTION_NAME VARCHAR2(30),

	ADDRESS_1_BILL VARCHAR2(50),

	ADDRESS_2_BILL VARCHAR2(50),

	CITY_BILL VARCHAR2(30),

	STATE_BILL VARCHAR2(20),

	ZIPCODE_BILL NUMBER(5,0),

	COUNTRY_BILL VARCHAR2(30)

);

Actually you are missing a comma. The SQL parser is just confused by it.

There needs to be a comma before the CONSTRAINT line.
CREATE TABLE CUSTOMER                           

  (CUSTOMER_NO NUMBER(8,0) NOT NULL,

  CONSTRAINT CUSTOMER_PK PRIMARY KEY(CUSTOMER_NO),                

  CUSTOMER_NAME   VARCHAR2(50) NOT NULL, 

  CUSTOMER_TYPE CHAR(1)

  CONSTRAINT CUST_TYPE 

  CHECK (CUSTOMER_TYPE IN ('B', 'C', 'S')),

  ATTENTION_NAME VARCHAR2(30),

  ADDRESS_1_BILL VARCHAR2(50),

  ADDRESS_2_BILL VARCHAR2(50),

  CITY_BILL VARCHAR2(30),

  STATE_BILL VARCHAR2(20),

  ZIPCODE_BILL NUMBER(5,0),

  COUNTRY_BILL VARCHAR2(30));

your primary key constraint which you have defined like:

CUSTOMER_NO NUMBER(8,0) NOT NULL,
  CONSTRAINT CUSTOMER_PK PRIMARY KEY(CUSTOMER_NO),    


should be:

CUSTOMER_NO NUMBER(8,0)
  CONSTRAINT CUSTOMER_PK PRIMARY KEY,    

note: the NOT NULL constaint is not specified for primary keys because primary keys are implicitly not null

additional note: your code for the primary key PRIMARY KEY(CUSTOMER_NO)

the (CUSTOMER_NO) is not required because it already knows that you are specifying PRIMARY KEY on the CUSTOMER_NO column of this table

Hi Beth, I will point out that you ignored other correct answers in this question, prior to angelIII. For the future it might be a good idea to read all expert's post prior, even if angelIII is your favorite expert (he is mine too! :)  hehehehe)
