Need Help With Crystal Reports

I need to create a basic report to disply some data from a database. I am able to do that easily. At the end of the report I want to display some special calaulated fields. I would like to calculate these in my VB program and display them on the report. This will be done at run time. How can I do this. I am new to Crystal Reports.

You can pass the VB calculations as parameters to your crystal report. Add a new parameter field to your crystal report (using the Field Explorer) then put a line of code like this right after you delcare the report.

myCrystalReport.SetParameterValue(0, "my parameter value)

You can link textboxes on your crystal report to the parameter values.

There is a little icon in your Crystal Toolbar when a report is open that says "Toggle Field View"
It 3 grey rectangles with some lines (like a tree node)
