With Oracle Report Builder it does not seem to be possible to have a text
field overflow into the next line and push everything below that down a
line.  (I'm porting an application from an old Paradox system and this was
possible in Paradox reports.)  If I make the text box double height in
Report Builder, then the second line appears OK, but most of the records
don't need a second line and end up being double spaced.  Is there any work
around for this?

Not that I know of. One of the feature limitations of the ORB I guess.

The problem is the N.aN in the amount column.  In the Table this field is
blank, but Report Builder displays it as N.aN which I understand means 'Not
a Number'.  I want it to be blank in the Report.  I've tried all sort of
possibilities in Conditional Print in the General Tab for that field, but
nothing seems to work.  Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

assign a macro that checks your result set for NULL and then replaces that in the report by a space char, or rewrite the query that you use to fetch the value and CAST it as another data type.

Another idea, off the cuff, but untested - deactivate automatic number recognition in your table (if the report is a Writer document) or else globally (I think there is a setting somewhere in Options ?)

One final question - is there a better alternative to Oracle Report

Yes, but all of them require manual/semi-automated fiddling with ODF documents, or programming knowledge, or both.
