How to pass a numeric value from VB.NET to an Unbound Field in Crystal Report .NET?

hi Experts,

is there a way to pass a numeric value from VB.NET to an Unbound Field in Crystal Report .NET?

i know how to pass a string to a TextObject in Crystal Report using:
    Dim rpt As New crTest
        Dim myTextObject As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.TextObject
        myTextObject = rpt.Section1.ReportObjects.Item("txtTEST")
        myTextObject.Text = "TESTING"

however Crystal Report cannot access the value of the TextObject,
thus i need to pass the value to an Unbound Field so i can manipulate the value in Crystal Report
