Converting a line of C# to VB.NET

Friends,

I have code here that was converted from C# To VB.NET, with the exception of a single line.

What this code does is, it takes the defined SSISPackage and executes it.  Great, except that now I want to execute it after setting the value of a user defined Variable.  Now, without the extra line, it executes and transfers the data that meets the criteria, but I want to be able to change that criteria by changing the variable value.

So, to make this work, can someone please convert the line to VB.NET.  I've tried, but I don't know enough about this SSIS stuff to make it work.
Thanks!

        Dim app As Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Application
        app = New Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Application
        Dim pkgResults_Sql As DTSExecResult
        Dim pkgErrors As DtsErrors
        Dim pkgWarnings As DtsWarnings

        Dim SSISPackage As String = "TestPreambleExport"

        Dim pkgIn As Package = New Package
       pkgIn = app.LoadFromSqlServer("\\" + SSISPackage, "SQLServerName", "UserName", "Password", Nothing)

        'pkg.Variables["PreamblePass"].Value = "R.I";  <-!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is the line I need to convert.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        'Also, in the example I got this from, pkg was not defined, so what does it need to be defined as???

        pkgResults_Sql = pkgIn.Execute()

my guess would be that the example you were looking at had a TYPO, and this code should read:

pkgIn.Variables["PreamblePass"].Value = "R.I"  

see if that works.

AW,

Well, that's what I would have orginially thought to do, but when I do that I get two errors:

Error      1      Property access must assign to the property or use its value.      
The whole line is underlined.

Error      2      Identifier expected.      
When I double-click on the error, it highlights the first double-quote, before PreamblePass

This should work:

pkgIn.Variables("PreamblePass").Value = "R.I"
