How to pass in data to a text box in Crystal Reports 10

I call this report from vb.net.  I send it a query no problems.  However, I have a text box on the report that I need to pass in data to.  Basically, the report title.  How in vb.net code, do I set this text box to read "Sales Report" ?

Look at the dynamic report formula sample.  In general it is easier to pass a formula into the report than a text box.

The formula would simply be the text he wants passed in " "

So far so good, the example code is fairly hard to understand, I was hoping for something a little more simple.  Ewaldt, thats exactly how I did it with older versions of Crystal with VB 6, but that no longer works with the new version.  I was hoping for something like

Report.txtTitle = "SALES REPORT"

Even the example code doesn't exactly tell you how to get the field names INTO the text boxes.  Any more hints?
