I don't think that you can pass your data directly to crystal report. However have your query as stored procedure and in designing your report, select the stored procedure as your input.

First you must add the control to your vb program, so had the crystal Report.ocx control and place it on the from. then supose you give it the name REPORT.
then place a command button in the form and in it place the code:

Report.ReportFileName = "c:\report_file_name.rpt" 'you report file name and path
Report.WindowTitle = "My Report"

'here you must place the formula. between quotes you must put the database table name (socios) and then a point (.) and the field to search (n_socio)
Report.SelectionFormula = "{socios.n_socio} =" & value_to_find
Report.Action = 1
