Experts,

How would I write a statement in Crystal 2008 that for a column named "Called_Start_Time" would replace any nulls with "No Contact Made"?  Where and how would I write this statement?

I have attached the file.. Change-Control-Maintenance-Repor.rpt

Too do this you need a formula like

If IsNull({Called_Start_Time}) then
   "No Contact Made"
Else
   CStr({Called_Start_Time},"dd-MMM-yyyy")
