How do you replace a table in Crystal Reports

Is there a way to simply replace one table with another table in Crystal?

I've created a report with a view that doesn't group my data correctly.  For example if something happened 5 times in a month, the view I used shows 5 rows.  The view I want to used looks exactly the same except the data is combined into one row.  

I created my report with the first table but now I want to use the second.  I don't want to rebuild the report, I just want to tell Crystal that the table name is changed and use the second one.  Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Under the Database menu is an option called Set Datasource Location.
This allows you to change which database object(s) your report uses.
They changed the setup from version 8.5 to 9 so without knowing the version you are using, it it pointless to do a step by step walkthrough.
The basic idea is to highlight datasource in the one window(current source), and in the second window find the new location and then click the update button.
