I added a new item to my VB.NET project (Crystal Report). It is called membersReport.rpt and I can see it in the Solution Explorer window. I have the following code in one of my forms

Dim myReport As New membersReport

The problem is that membersReport is not valid.

Any ideas on what I am forgetting ?

Try this:
1)move .rpt file and acociated .vb file out of the project folder
2) remove the rpt file from the solution
3) readd the rpt file back to the sulotion

.vb file will be generated automaticly.

then you should be able to creat new report object

Open your Form in design mode. Add a 'Report Document' component in your form, from ToolBox->Components TAB. When you will double click the 'Report Document' component in Components tab, it will show you all the report names from your proejct. Select the report that you want to add. Once added you can see the name of the report at the botton of your vb form. After that you can use the report name in your form.
