Conditional logic in File Cards

CAn you use conditional logic (similar to IF..THEN...ELSE in programming languages) with file cards?

 

What I want to do is have a text label that is dependent on the value of a variable.  So, for example, if variable ECR_Status has a value of "0", it would indicate UNDECIDED, and have the text field on the file data card say UNDECIDED.  If the ECR_Status value is 1, then I want the text field on the file data card to say ACCEPTED, and so on.

 

Can this be done with Enterprise PDM 2012?  (If not, then if someone could point me in the direction of how I could get something like this to work.  It is being used in our production department, and some of the people don't quite understand the idea behind variables and data car values, and I'm trying to make it as easy to understand for everyone by using text labels that make sense, rather than having ECR_Status be equal to some number ,and have to have people figure out what the number means...)
