I have two radio button on my form stating two director name . The letter will contain either of two Directors as an authorized signatory.

The problem how can i insert this text into the report.( If i use a blank Text it say cannot modify readonly property. And if i use Unbounded Field it say object not found.)

Please Suggest Its urgent.

Dim crxApp As CRAXDDRT.Application
    Dim crxRpt As CRAXDDRT.Report
    Set crxApp = New CRAXDDRT.Application
    If optIncrLetter = True Then
       Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Incerment_Letter.rpt")
    ElseIf OptMidterm = True Then
        Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Mid_Term_Letters.rpt")
    End If
    crxRpt.Database.Tables(1).Location = txtMainFile
