When I enter this is doesn't create the table, it just displays all lines of the code.
I am running @create_table_ship_address
which is the .txt .sql file

I have created tables this way before, can anyone tell what's wrong!?
Thanks!
CREATE TABLE SHIPPING                           
  ( CUSTOMER_SHIP_ID (8,0) NOT NULL  
  , CUSTOMER_NO NUMBER(8,0) NOT NULL
  , CUSTOMER_SHIP_TYPE CHAR(1)
  , DATE_ADDED DATE
  , DATE MODIFIED DATE
  , ADDRESS_1_SHIP VARCHAR2(50)
  , ADDRESS_2_SHIP VARCHAR2(50)
  , CITY_SHIP VARCHAR2(30)
  , STATE_SHIP VARCHAR2(20)
  , ZIPCODE_SHIP NUMBER(5,0)
  , COUNTRY_SHIP VARCHAR2(30)
  , CONSTRAINT SHIPPING_PK PRIMARY KEY(CUSTOMER_SHIP_ID)           
  , CONSTRAINT CUST_SH_TYPE CHECK (CUSTOMER_SHIP_TYPE IN ('W', 'M', 'D', 'O'))
  , CONSTRAINT SHIPPING_FK     FOREIGN KEY (CUSTOMER_NO)  
  , REFERENCES CUSTOMER(CUSTOMER_NO)) 
  , ON DELETE CASCADE
  , ON UPDATE CASCADE)

Are you running this from sqlplus? What is the exact filename? If it has more than one extension or an extension other than ".sql" you need to use the entire filename and path. For example,
SQL> @c:\create_table_shipp_address.txt.sql

Commented:
I think maybe you need to remove the comas in front of the constraints.

By the way, you still need to change "CUSTOMER_SHIP_ID (8,0) NOT NULL" to "CUSTOMER_SHIP_ID NUMBER(8,0) NOT NULL"

This is what I'm getting back from SQL PLUS
does this make sense?
Usually it just creates the table...
SQL> @create_table_ship_address.sql
  1  CREATE TABLE SHIPPING
  2    ( CUSTOMER_SHIP_ID NUMBER(8,0) NOT NULL
  3    , CUSTOMER_NO NUMBER(8,0) NOT NULL
  4    , CUSTOMER_SHIP_TYPE CHAR(1)
  5    , DATE_ADDED DATE
  6    , DATE MODIFIED DATE
  7    , ADDRESS_1_SHIP VARCHAR2(50)
  8    , ADDRESS_2_SHIP VARCHAR2(50)
  9    , CITY_SHIP VARCHAR2(30)
 10    , STATE_SHIP VARCHAR2(20)
 11    , ZIPCODE_SHIP NUMBER(5,0)
 12    , COUNTRY_SHIP VARCHAR2(30)
 13    , CONSTRAINT SHIPPING_PK PRIMARY KEY(CUSTOMER_SHIP_ID)
 14    , CONSTRAINT CUST_SH_TYPE CHECK (CUSTOMER_SHIP_TYPE IN ('W', 'M', 'D', 'O'))
 15    , CONSTRAINT SHIPPING_FK     FOREIGN KEY (CUSTOMER_NO)
 16    , REFERENCES CUSTOMER(CUSTOMER_NO))
