A couple of suggesions, both of which will work:

1.  In CR you can right click on the field(s), select Format Field, click on the Common tab, check the Suppress box, click the code box to the right of the Suppress box and enter the user names.

-OR-

2.  In VB you can just write the reporting records out to a temporary file and point CR to that file for its source input file.  Then in VB you can check to see if the user should see or not see the fields.  If not see, then don't write out the fields to the temporary file.

Best of luck

u mean to say that you want that for some users a field should come and for others it should not come.

Well what u can do is to create a parameter field in Crystal report and then pass the username to it.

Now write a formula like
if username(this is parameter field) = username then
    'u returen blank
else
    'u return something
end if

I remember in expert exchange someone has put the code to access cr field from VB but now i don't remeber the question number..do some search and you willl find it..
