I'm having a report and the DB tables r now modified and i have added new fields to the tables , those fields which r not now included in the report .
When i'm opening that report to add field objects and insert my new fields i'm not able to get the new fields added in those tables , they show all the old fields .
Then i tried adding the new updated table through the Report Expert , it says already a table exists by that name and it doesn't give me the option to delete the table and add its new version .

If i add then the entire design is changed as if i'm starting a new report . Can u please suggest me how to insert new fields which are not there in the existing report .In the Create Report expert Field Tab when i'm adding a field which is not included in the report previously and then save it all the row and design of my existing report changes .
Can anyone help me out in this regard??
thanks

Hello anamika1977 !

It's totally unclear which reportig tool and which version you're using.

If you're using Crystal Reports you may need to verify using the Database|Verify Database command.

V.K.
