The SL(2,R) invaraint ten dimensional type IIB superstring effective action is compactified on a torus to D spacetime dimensions. The transformation properties of scalar, vector and tensor fields, appearing after the dimensional reduction, are obtained in order to maintain the SL(2,R) invariance of the reduced effective action. The symmetry of the action enables one to generate new string vacua from known configurations. As illustrative examples, new black hole solutions are obtained in five and four dimensions from a given set of solutions of the equations of motion.
