Changing the Characteristic Values on the Query


Hello Masters of the BW Domain

Is there a way to display the values of a characteristic in a report based on a condition? I have a characteristic called Rebates with only 2 valid values (Y and N). Instead of showing it as Y and N, I want them displayed as "With Rebate" for Y and "No Rebate" for N. Is it possible to do this without changing the underlying data in the cube and doing the translation at the query level? Would it require a user exit to accomplish this? All the user exits that I've run into only dealt with dates and not with transforming text values.
