VB.net Crystal Formula field alignment

I am creating a Formula field that converts a decimal to a text string and adds a Pct sign.
totext(Sum({GMFTempWeeklyProd1.Mon})/{?TtlPounds}* 100)+ '%'
By default this is left aligned. I can't find a place in the Crystal interface to right align this field. I have searched for a way to do it in code but have not been successful.
I think I am looking for something like:

Dim crObject as ??????? This has to refer to the Report I have already loaded

For each crObject in crObject.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects
   If crObject.name = "FormulaFieldName" then
      crObject.ObjectFormat.HorizontalAlignment = Alignment.RightAlign
    end if
next

Any suggestions?
thanks,
pat

Are you creating the field in code?

I believe you just need to use Object

mlmcc,
The field is created in the designer and not in code.

In code I am trying to identity the field and change its horizontal alignment.

I made the following changes based on your suggestion

 'I am not exactly sure of this statement. I can't check as computer is off
dim cryRpt as crystal.ReportDocumant


Dim crObject as  OBJECT

For each crObject in cryRpt.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects
