1/ ORA-0650 does not exist
2/ Without more than what you said, the answer is: fix the error.

Sifiso, are you referring to ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error?

As you don't say more and there are many and many possible origins of this error what can we say?
Fix the error.

I need to customize the Oracle Standard report, Called (Invoice Print New Invoices)according to user specification. But the error I got by the time I ran the report on an aplication is this one: Oracle error 6502: ORA-06502: PL?SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small, detected on ARP_RAXINV_MLS_PACKAGE.ARP_RAXINV_MLS_FUNCTION.

Please help.

Writing the error in red does not help us to find why there is an error.

Buffer string too small

A variable is declared too small to fit the value you want to set it.

Yes, you need to get a programmer to look at that function. A character variable is too short.

Here is an example of how it can happen:

SQL> DECLARE
  2    str VARCHAR2(2);
  3  BEGIN
  4    str := '123';
  5  END;
  6  /
DECLARE
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small
ORA-06512: at line 4
