REP-1800 indicates an abnormal condition.
Oracle
Sometimes you may encounter an error that is known as an abnormal condition, which may arise from one of the following causes:
  • Someone has done something that prevented your application from completing the requested task. For example, if someone bypassed the user interface and changed data in a database table, they might have typed an invalid value.
  • A software bug prevented the requested task from completing.
Action: First contact your system administrator to determine if the message was caused by something other than Oracle Reports. If you determine that the message was not the result of user error or a system problem, then contact Oracle Support Services.

hi,
We don't have any system administrator in our office. I am the only person using oracle, so someone changing data does not ar
ise.

Pl suggest some solution and I don't face such problem in any of my other report

Does the report work OK when you don't try to generate it to a PDF file?

You might try to install one of (free) virtual PDF printers (such as PrimoPDF) and "print" to it.

Consider applying TO_DATE function with the appropriate format mask, such as
where my_date_column between to_date('01.01.2016', 'dd.mm.yyyy')
                         and to_date('31.12.2016', 'dd.mm.yyyy')

How do you know the parameters are ok?
Does it work for any date range in report builder?
Does it not work for any date range from application?

If so the trouble may be due to different nls_date_formats.

... which might be avoided with the TO_DATE function.

Dear Littlefoot,
Yes, It works fine for 01-jan-2016 to 31-dec-2016 in report builder.
And it works also for 01-jan-2016 to 30-oct-2016 from application
but does not work for 01-jan-2016 to 31-dec-2016 from application

I'm not sure whether you applied TO_DATE function or not. In any case, you should have.

Take (copy) query from the report and run it (paste) in a tool you use to access the database (such as SQL*Plus, SQL Developer, TOAD, ...), passing November and December as parameters. Make sure query returns ALL rows (i.e. not only the first 100 or so that GUI tools usually return). What happens?
