How can I replace a word with a new word..  Example:  On the status column I want to replace "Closed" with "Completed"?

I was thinking
If "Closed"({Maintenance.Status}) then
   "Completed"
Else
   CStr({Maintenance.Status})

But that doesn't work

Thanks

Oh and what if I wanted it to be a wild card like "Close%",  sine there may be other words after?
