Using Crystal 9 and need to convert field values to a text equivalent

I have created a report in Crystal which obtains data from an Access database.  I have a field called status which holds the
values 0 which should display as "Active"
       1 which should display as "Inactive"
       2 which should display as "Left"

I do not know Crystal well at all and am on a steep learning curve.  Any help and advise on how to get the report to display the correct text based on the status value?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Easiest way to do this would be to create a formula field. Click on the formula workshop icon (looks like x-1).
Click New Formula (dont accidently create a new function).
Name the formula and then click on it in the left pane.

type this as the formula:

if whatevertablename.status = 0 then
else if whatevertablename.status = 1 then

replace whatevertablename with the name of your access database table.
