What do you mean?

Crystal can only base groups on Crystal formulas or database fields not anything from VB.Net

What kind of code?  What value are you passing?

What data do you have?

What are you trying to accomplish?

Actually i want to pass a field name from vb.net to CR and grouping should be made based on it.
For Eg In case of SalesOrder Report, if i pass Deliverydate Or ItemCode grouping has to be done based on it.

You can group on a formula but you will have to convert all fields to the same datatype most likely STRING or TEXT

If {?YourGroupParam} = 'DelveryDate' then
    CStr({DelveryDateField},'yyyy/mm/dd')
Else If {?YourGroupParam} = 'ItemCode' then
    {ItemCodeField}
Else etc
