DataFields not showing up in Rave Data Connection

Previously I had created a Rave Project and many Data Connections successfully. I have been away from it for a while and am now cannot get the data fields to show up when trying to add a new data connection. This did happen a few times when I first started using Rave and I cannot remember how I fixed it.

I have a RvProject, RvSystem and RvDataConnection. The RvDataConnection is for a ClientDataSet. I run the Delphi App and then start Rave Designer. I add a new Data Object using Direct Data Connection. The ClientDataSet shows in the list. But it only adds the name of the dataset to the Data Views list. The fields do not show even when I refresh.  The Clientdataset is for an xml file. I already have 15 data views. All were clientdatasets with xml files so that is not the issue. What could I be overlooking?

Thank you

Okay here are some ideas that you probably already know.

You can execute your report using F9 - you proabably know this.
Then, sometimes the data only goes live when you actually run the application, i.e. not in design time. So you might save the report, run your application and have your application execute it.
I'll let you know if I think of anything else

The problem is that I cannot add the data fields to the report because they are not showing up in the DataView. I really think I must be doing (or not doing) something very silly since I have been succssful before. Very frustrating. I have spent several hours on this.

Using the Delphi version of Rave repors, I found that just opening the datasource did not work. Once I had the data coming up in a dbgrid, I was able to open Rave Reports from within Delphi and could see my fields.
