Robert has already suggested Sweave.

Note that with both graphics and text, you can also output to Postscript and 
PDF files.  With a little work, you can combine your textual data into tables 
(I usually use a data.frame) and output as a PDF.  With a little more work, you 
can combine graphics and tables on a PDF page, all from inside R.

There is also a plugin available for OpenOffice that works like Sweave in OOo.

For future reference, this question belonged on r-help, as it is not really 
finance related.  Many threads on r-help over the years have covered this topic.
