Default Field Headings in Crystal Reports

I am new to Crystal Reporting. One thing I am trying to figure out how to set up is automatic field headings. When I place a database field on the report (using the wizard) the field name automatically becomes the field heading. I have a problem with short fields with long names EX: Order Status that is a one-byte field for the report with a field name of ORDER_STATUS. I would like to set up (maybe a field description or some other automatic field mapping) that the report title for this field should be O/S or something.

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

Thanks
Liz:)

Thanks. What I am looking for is an automatic way - so that I can set up my tables with "built-in" descriptions, so the end-users can just drop the fields on the reports and not have to type a heading on each report.
