I a newbie to Oracle Reports, our requirement is to write a report from

a text file on the UNIX box, not from a database table.
I have knowledge of PL/SQL, and the UTL_FILE ppackage to extract the
file data and manipulate it..
I would write a stored procedure for this, but our managers do not want

us to write this data to a table and read it from there...
Is it possible to extract data using PL/SQL from a text file into
Oracle Reports?
Please advise, or point me to the correct help..

.... and cross-posting or multi-posting into the comp.databases.oracle
heirarchy doesn't speed things up either.
