All SELECT statements must have the same number of expressions.

If the first SELECT statement contains three expressions, all succeeding SELECT statements must contain three expressions.

You can use a null expression in a SELECT statement as a place holder for a missing expression.

In the following example, the second expression is null.

   SELECT EmpNo, NULL (CHAR(5)) 
   FROM Employee;
