I have a SQL 2005 stored procedure I've used as the datasource in Crystal XI report. I also have a second SQL 2005 test stored procedure on the same server that I want to "swap" with the original stored procedure.

I'm attempting this in the Set Datasource Location window in Crystal XI. First, I create a new ODBC connection in the bottom half of this screen and navigate to StoredProcedure#2. I then select StoredProcedure#1 (current datasource) in the the top half of the screen and click "Update". When I test the results it seems to in fact be using the new code from StoredProcedure#2 however "StoredProcedure#1" continues to display as the current data source. Any ideas how to get this description to update?

Thanks for your help!

If you expand the values in the top of set datasource location,  you should see your new proc listed, the alias is what shows up more prominently.
Use Data Expert to change the alias used by Crystal (F2).
