Set the On Format event of the report section where your report field is located (usually the Detail section) to [Event Procedure]. Open the VBEditor for this event and place in the following code line:
If the report field is unbound then use:
If not IsNull(Forms![SoftwareOrderReportForm]![ActiveStatus]) Then
Me.myReportField = Forms![SoftwareOrderReportForm]![ActiveStatus]
Me.myReportField = "N/A" 'or whatever you want it to read.
There are easier ways to do this but this gives you a quick idea what can be done.
