vb.net crystal reports format section event

I am using vb.net 2003 with crystal reports.  In vb6 you could get at the section events easily to provide complex formating via code.  What is the equivalent in vb.net and how do you implement it.  I think this is done via the format section event but i cannot find it anyway.  I wish to put data into a report field that i look up via another function i have written .
