It might be easier not to use iReport to convert the number to words at all. Consider wrapping the select statement in a stored procedure that generates the figures in words and returns them in the same format as the sql select would. Then just use the procedure as a data source instead of the query.


The code wouldn't be that bad. The procedure would have to:

-Get each digit and its magnitude (tens, hundreds, thousands)

-Get the string value of each digit/magnitude pair and stick them all together.


No idea what it would look like in pl/sql, hopefully you have a DBA that can help you.
