Thanks for the interesting info on Oracle Reports.  Just fyi, we have
a non-free product called rml2pdf which would make this extremely easy
-- rml2pdf, which has a built in template/generator facility.  You might
want to have a look, especially if you need to have "non-programmers"
designing  the reports.  The license price is currently discounted $3k.

Hope you find it of interest!  -- Aaron Watters
