Change Crystal database from development to production without losing fields

I have several Crystal Reports for a program that are linked to tables in a development database. The table structure in the production database are identical to those in development. When I use the Database Expert to change the data source, the fields disappear and I have to re-format all of the fields again when I make the new connection. Is there an easy way to change the database connection from development to production without losing the fields in the report?
