Your error is because you have a calculated column with no name...
But your SQL won't give you want you want anyway...this one will
Note I'm using the AS to assign a name
CHAR_LENGTH(STRIP(CAT#)) as Len
, count(*) as cnt
where cat# <> ' '
group by CHAR_LENGTH(STRIP(CAT#))

I have a file with a catalog# in it. I want to view/print a list of the
lengths of the data within the field. I want one record per length.
The catalog# is defined as 20 characters, I was able to use
CHAR_LENGTH(STRIP(CAT#)) to see the lengths.
How can I make SQL give me one result like this:
I tried this but I get an error, Column list required
create table wrk/counter as
(select cat#, CHAR_LENGTH(STRIP(CAT#)) from FILE
where cat# <> ' ') with data
