I am using visual studio crystal reports.
A crystal reports detail field receives a value of "1" from a .net checkbox by default.
I need a sample formula for the detail field value "1" to convert to the value "OK".

If the .net checkbox is unchecked the detail field would show no value.

Thanks

Thanks for the response.

I used this formula:
if{tblSprinklerWorkorderDetail2.FunctionOK} = 1 then 'OK'
else
""
I get an error message - The result of selection formula must be a boolean.

I think you have put the formula in a selection formula.
You need to create a formula field and drop it on the report.
In your field explorer right click on Formula Field and click "New"
Once it is created, drag from the explorer to your report.
