Why won't Crystal Reports let me update the Database Expert Query?

Hello everybody!  I am in the process of trying to update the Database Expert Query, but when I hit OK and go back and check, there is no change to the query.  What am I doing wrong and how do I change the Database Expert Query?  Is there anything I can do to change this?

By D/b expert query I assume the command object?
You need to store the command object in the repository first and then update the current query with the new query in the repositoy. You can refer to the link to kbase article in this thread:

What are you trying to do?

What do you mean update?
Have you tried DATABASE --> VERIFY DATABASE

If this is a report from a previous version of Crystal that is based on a Crystal Query (created using the Crystal SQL Designer) then you have two options:

1)  If you have Crystal Reports Server, Crystal Enterprise 10 or BusinessObjects Enterprise XI, then you can use the Database Migration Wizard.  This will convert the query to a SQL Command Objects

2)  If you don't have any of the above software, you can rewrite the report.
