If using SQLPLUS don't use empty lines, it causes a parse error:

SELECT
TRANSACTION_DATE,
PACKLIST_NO NUMBER,
TRANSACTION_CODE,
JOBCOST_UNITS,
COST_PER_UNIT,
JOBCOST_UNITS * COST_PER_UNIT AS "EXTENDED PRICE"
     <-- REMOVE EMPTY LINE -->
FROM JOBCOST
     <-- REMOVE EMPTY LINE -->
SORT BY TRANSACTION_DATE;

order by transaction_date => not sort by
Also, remove the blank lines between the attribute list and the from clause and the from clause and the order by clause.

I've tried everything.
This one should be very simple, but I can't get it.
SELECT 
TRANSACTION_DATE,
PACKLIST_NO NUMBER,
TRANSACTION_CODE,
JOBCOST_UNITS,
COST_PER_UNIT,
JOBCOST_UNITS * COST_PER_UNIT AS EXTENDED PRICE
FROM JOBCOST;

>>JOBCOST_UNITS * COST_PER_UNIT AS EXTENDED PRICE

EXTENDED PRICE cannot be two words, or else you must quote it.

Add enclosing quotes.

JOBCOST_UNITS * COST_PER_UNIT AS "EXTENDED PRICE"

Or use underscore in the alias name,
... AS EXTENDED_PRICE
