SNMP text value from MIB in alert, rather than numerical value?

Wasn't sure exactly how to phrase the thread title but I think that pretty much sums it up.

I'm monitoring our data centre UPS's with the SNMP monitor, and am writing some custom alert messages for each alert condition I'm setting. One particular value I want to watch isn't a simple threshold as such but is a number assigned to a status. The status is '3' when healthy (which translates to "normal") but if it switches to 4 ("bypass") or 4 ("battery") then there is a problem.

Does anyone know if there is any way of getting the TEXT value based on the data in the MIB into the alert? If I use the $value variable in the message I just get the numerical representation rather than the status in text...

Anybody?
