You are specifying the cursor object instead of the record objects: Try:

  INSERT INTO INV_TEMP (stockcode, recond, storeroom, month, quantity)
  VALUES(c_locmeterreading.a,
  c_locmeterreading.b,
  c_locmeterreading.c,
  c_locmeterreading.d,
  c_locmeterreading.f);

Also, values should be c_locmetreading, not cur_locmetreading.
