    I would try replacing the line break for a blank when querying the database.
    If not possible, you can try in the report something like a combination of functions like REPLACE a UNICHAR(10). I use UNICHAR(10) to insert line breaks when I need to a text, so maybe you can use it to try to take them out, although you'll have to delve into the possible different types of linebreaks, maybe there are other types of UNICHAR codes for different linebreaks (windows/unix style, tabs working as linebreaks, etc)
