The problem is simple buddy, the query syntax you are using supports Oracle 9i and higher. Its called ANSI/ISO Syntax. Instead of using this, try the older one, which most of the developers use to avoid the error.
It goes like this.

This is the example of left outer join. The (+) operator is on the left side of the compare operator, if you put it on the right side you'll get the right outer join.

I hope this helps you out.
