How can I name a formula?

How can I name a formula?

I am trying to name a formula and I can't figure out how to do this.

I am working on a list in SharePoint and I have a calculated field with a formula. I would like to have the field display a name rather than the formula.

Below is the formula

CODE -->

="http://ll-sql7/ReportServer?%2fPublic%2fIS%2fPPT+-+Parts+Planning+Tool%2fPart+Detail+Information&partID="&[Part Number]&"*&rs%3aParameterLanguage=" 

When a user is working in the task list they see the whole formula which looks terrible and takes up more room. I would like be able to give the formula a name so that it just says "PPT".

Can someone tell me if this can be done and how?

Thank you
