Report Model & Add New Source Field

I created a report model in Visual Studio for ReportBuilder and built a report. I later edited the model by adding a new source field.  I bound the new field to a database column, regenerated and re-deployed the model to the server.  However, I can't see my newly created field in the model when I use ReportBuilder.

I wonder if this is similar to ReportManager in Reporting Services -- after you've edited your model and re-deployed, you still need to upload that file to the Report Manager.  

in the manager up top there is an 'Upload File' option
select this, you are allowed to browse to the new report definition (.rdl) file, and upload it
overwriting the item if it already exists.

this is how i deploy new reports or new versions of existing reports
i am not sure about 'reportbuilder', though
i am using sql and reporting services, v2000

Thanks, dbaSQL.
I'm new to Reporting Services, so I very well may have been doing things wrong.  I tried modifying my report model again after I received your reply, and this time it worked.  I saw the changes in my modified model.  I will keep your solution in mind if I have the same problem in the future.
You're very welcome.  I am pleased things have come together.
