I have a report that has a rate amount field. Depending on what the rate type field is will determine whether the field needs to be displayed as a percent or as a decimal. Example if the rate type = CASE then rate amount needs to be a decimal if the rate type = RATE then the rate amount needs to be a percent. Where and how would I do this kind of conditional formatting in crystal?

I would be inclined to use two copies of the field in this case. Format one as percent and the other as decimal.
Use conditional suppression to suppress the one you don't want to see.

Right click the field and choose Format field.
On the Common tab click the X+2 button for the Suppress option.

Add your rule here.

(Do the opposite rule for the other copy of the field)
