Yes CR has abuilt in function to do this

You need to create a formula using the towords function

Create a new formula like
towords({tablename.fieldname})

Save the formula
Insert the formula in the report

If your numbers are integers use

towords({tablename.fieldname},0)

to eliminate the fraction from the end.
