One of your fields is most likely not a numeric field type, have you checked them in the table.

Do you know which field is giving the problem?

You might try building a report yo simply show each record without trying to do any summaries to ensure you are getting the data you expect.

If you don't see anything ad the summaries one at a time until you get the error.

 The query i have written contatins a case statement this is the query

select distinct iid,
rtrim(vcbankID) AS BankNumber,
amount as TotalAmount,
amount-nvl(withdrewamt,0) as CaseAmount,
CASE WHEN (amount=0) THEN 0
     ELSE to_number(((amount-nvl(withdrewamt,0)) *100)/amount)
          END as PrctAmoount,
nvl(withdrewamt,0) as withdrewamt,
CASE WHEN nvl( withdrewamt,0)=0 THEN 0
      WHEN (amount=0) THEN 0
          ELSE (nvl(withdrewamt,0)*100)/amount
          END as PrctIncurred
