I'm not to clear what you are trying to do here as I use newer versions of CR.

In newer versions you can create a parameter field within the developer.

You can then post the value to the parameter using Report.Parameters(0)=mydate.

If Ver 5 does not have a Parameter Field the only thing you can do is replace the report title and append the date to it i.e. Report.Reporttitle=Report.ReportTitle & " " format$(mydate,"mm/dd/yy") or whatever date format you want

Create a formula in Report (say datVBDate) and place it whereever u need the date to be displayed. After getting the value for the iniDate in VB just pass this value to the formula.
Pass it like this

Crystalreport1.formulas(0)='" datVBDate= "' & iniDate

Thus, your formula now will contain the value of iniDate abd will be displayed in the report. Take care for the slightest syntax errors. Otherwise, positively this is the solution. We have done this all the time. Get back to me.
