I have a column in my database where I want to auto generate the value of that column based on another column.

transaction_type              status
A                                         PAY
B                                         DONT PAY
NULL                                   Waiting

transaction_type can hold three values as mentioned above.
Based on the values transaction_type hold, I want the status column to auto generate the above mentioned values.
How do i go about doing that.??
