This is quite a basic question so i'm sorry, i know how to do this in basic but my programming isn't brilliant beyond that.

I have a field Project Type {ProjectIMAPIView.Field37166}

which is either Highly Probable, Probable, Prospect or Business Development

The report that I am creating sorts by this field in the order as above. I would also like to display which record belongs to which group but would prefer for the words to be abbreviated

Highly Probable = HB
Probable = PR
Prospect = PS
Business Development = BD

How can I do this?

Thanks Ed.

You just need a formula field which derives the abbreviation and add it to your detail line.

If {ProjectIMAPIView.Field37166}= "Highly Probable" then
"HP"
else if {ProjectIMAPIView.Field37166}= "Probable" then
"PR"
else if {ProjectIMAPIView.Field37166}= "Prospect" then
"PS"
else if {ProjectIMAPIView.Field37166}= "Business Development" then
"BD"
else
"N/A"

Brilliant, thank you, I tried something like that but couldn't get it to work, I feel slightly like a numskull. Ed.
