It should work, although it can only be a literal string that can be set.  What's the problem with it?

Another option is to simply create a parameter in your report and pass in the parameter value.  Position the parameter to display wherever you want it.

thanks for your response frodoman
but it didn't work when i tried the SetText function in CR.NET

below is my code:
Dim rpt As New crMyReport
rpt.txtTest.SetText("TESTING")

the error message is: 'txtTest' is not a member of 'MyProject.crMyReport'
and i did put a Text Object called txtTest in crMyRport

it worked in Crystal Report 8.5

there might be a syntax change in CR.NET, could you give me an example?

thanks

Try this instead

rpt = New crMyReport
Dim myTextObject As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject
myTextObject = rpt.Section1.ReportObjects.Item("txtTest")
myTextObject.Text = "TESTING"
