First time while creating report save the sql query.
OPTION 1:
I have tried with a table called AM_PM_TYPE which has two column "Index" and "TX"
I have written the query as
"select * from AM_PM_TYPE"
build it . The microsoft query designer will open
chose the column "INDEX" AND "TX"
click on next next
then the query looks like following:
select AM_PM_TYPE.INDEX, AM_PM_TYPE.TX from AM_PM_TYPE
and save the query.
design the report
shows
INDEX                  Description

AM                     bla bla bla
PM                     bla bla bla
Save the report
go to the Report Expert
click ok to warning message
select the ADO
follow the same procedure (change the query)
click ok
it will ask you that the report with the ado name already added with alias "whgkh" want to add another alias for "whgkh"
click yes
change the name of the alias.
Then remove the fields from the first query
select the desired fields from the second alias name.

Then after designing the report go to Database ->remove from report and remove the first alias name.
If you now see the visual linking expert it will show the fields from second query.
It worked ..

Option 2:

change the saved query file
refresh the report with verify database.
redesign the report.

Best of luck.
