Crystal Reports 2008

Hello,

I would like to change the word result on my report from what is given by my database to something else.

So lets say the database gives me a result of AA, and in the report I would like Banana to show up. What formula should I use?

Thank you

Where are you putting the formula?

You should just create a formula in the field explorer and then drag the field to the report

Hello,

I was doing it under Select Expert. Your suggestion worked. Small problem with this solution however is that lets say AA is shown as banana and BB is shown as apple and currently I have no idea what future results may be.

So say in one week CC comes out but I don't have it in the code. I would not like the field to be empty, so what should I add at the end of the formula to have CC show up there? Basically after:

If {MyField} = 'AA' then
    'banana'
Else if {MyField} = 'BB' then
    'apple'

I would want Else display answer as is. How would I do that?

Please let me know if you need further clarification. Thank you.
