DESTYPE values for Reports 2.5 ???

I am trying to have my report output in text format. But I am running into problems.
What are all the possible DESTYPE parameters , I know PDF LIS, and EPS all work but I cant find any for plain text.
Please help me out.

--To clairify- I'm looking for a list of valid DESTYPE parameters to format my report output into a text file ( ie: DESTYPE = FILE)
Or if one is not availabvle a work around for htis problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
