I don't think you can get at the text box values from Crystal.  

Instead of a text box create a formula

Name - MyTextBox
Formula
'My Name'

You should be able to use the formula in your other formula.

<< the problem is...the txtName value will always changed depending on user input >>

how does the value change ? text boxes can't be edited by users at run time.

Could you use a parameter field ? to hold the name and then use this in your formula.

In that case you can use mlmcc idea nad instead of passing the value to a text box via code amend your code to pass the value to a formula.

create a formula with a single space inside double quotes.

then yuo can pass the value to this at runtime using the Text property of the formula object i.e.

Report.FormulaFields.Item(1).text = "My Name"

Actually you need to include the quotes in the text replacement

Use

Report.FormulaFields.Item(1).text = " 'My Name' "

or

Report.FormulaFields.Item(1).text = chr(34) & "My Name" & chr(34)
