There is no way to stop the creation of a Spill file when
the main memory is exhausted, and the report is too
large for the main memory alone.

There are some options for customizing the product settings to avoid the creation of a spill file. 

Resource Control
Using user profiles, it is possible to define various resource controls by user, group, and environment.

Maximum number of rows returned by a query
Maximum amount of memory that can be used
Maximum size of the spill file that can be used when CA Report Facility
uses all the specified report memory
