Report Field remapping

Hello,
I'm using one report i've designed in the .NET IDE as a template for other reports not to redesign everything.
I open the reports in Crystal Enterprise 10 to remap the summary fields (couldn't do it in the .NET IDE).
But I couldn't figure out how to remap the datafields I've dragged on the report to another table.
If I could do that, I wouldn't have to reformat and reposition these fields too.

thanks for the help.

In Crystal there is a SET ALIAS or SET LOCATION option under the database.  This should allow you to do what you desire.  You will have to ensure the fields are in the same order and may need to rename the fields.

This is not what I would like to do.

For Summary fields you can "Edit Summary" and remap the summary to another field of the same table or even another table.
I would like to do the same with table data fields that were dragged on the report.
remap to another field of the same table or another table.
though, there is no "edit field" I thought there might be some trick to do that.

Nnope.  the only way to do that is with the set location or alias.  Unmapped fields can then be mapped.
