Updated BV not reflecting in Crystal Reports Repository

Updated BV not reflecting in Crystal Reports Repository

Updated BV not reflecting in Crystal Reports Repository

I am new to using Business Objects Enterprise and I am struggling with Business Views. I have updated my BV by adding more BE and SQL Expressions through BV Manager and I cannot see the changes in my BV that has already been attached to my crystal 2008 report? Is there a way to force a refresh in Crystal Reports 2008 (v12)? I have been trying the refresh option, making new connections, but nothing seems to work. I cannot unattach the BV from the report now that it has been attached. Is this an impossiblilty and do I have to rebuild the report? I sure hope not, because this is painful trying to make a change after it's all built.

RE: Updated BV not reflecting in Crystal Reports Repository

Open the report and go to the Database menu. Click on "Verify Database". If that does not work, again go to the Database menu and select "Set Datasource Location". Create a new connection to the BV and select the existing BV under the new connection. This should update the BV in the report.
