You may want to look at this thread.
http://www.birt-exchange.org/org/forum/index.php/topic/19827 -how-do-i-use-word-wrap-in-report-design/page__s__ad0bb32bbb ac95aee7b5556149417a73
If the element is a data element you could enter an expression like:
length = longStr.length;
if(length <= width)
return (longStr.substring(0, width) + "\n" +
wrap(longStr.substring(width, length), width));
Just replace the wrap(str,size) with your data column
wrap( dataSetRow["mylongstring"], 6 );
If there is whitespace it should be autowrapping.
