In my current field of endeavour I am producing lots of pdf reports with statistics and charts embedded into the layout. (Something that I am sure is being done all over, but I am new to this ;-)

I am currently using R epitools to generate the results and using openoffice to layout the report and openoffice formula to format the maths. Its a bit of a pain to to keep having to flip back between R and openoffice, and keep manually making changes using the openoffice formula program. I am thinking there must be a better way.

I am suspecting that it might be possible to do something with MS office with the Rexcel tool, but at the moment I don't have windows readily available. I was wondering if there was another stats package that allows you to embed workings straight into a report?
