changing data source in Crystal Reports deletes all bound fields

    When I change the data source for a report say like from SQL to a stored
    procedure or if the table fields have changed, all the bound fields on the
    report vanish. It's time consuming to recreate all these fields and set the
    format in each.

    Is there any way to keep the fields and tell CR the new mapping? To map
    each field from the old source to the new source.

  2. Crystal will allow you to design the report using their
    text-file-with-table-structure files. The extension is "ttx". You can then
    set the data source at run-time.
