Infopath - list columns empty upon republished of form

We modified an infopath form that was published to a forms library.  After publishing the form to the library.  All the columns that previously had information showing, are now empty.  However, we can open each individual form then close it, then is regenerates the missing information in the columns.  Is there anyway to re-populate this information without opening each individual form.

Thank you to everyone for input.  The issue resolved itself.  The next day, I found all the columns in the data library were updated.

By columns, are you referring to something specifically in the InfoPath form or a property-promoted field that is displayed in the library? Also, is the entire form impacted or just certain fields that were modified?

When I mentioned the columns are blank.  I was referring to the columns in the forms library.  After publishing the new form to the library.  The columns that previously held information are now blank.  I did open a few forms individually.  Once I closed out the forms, the columns for those forms now show data.  
The form is not impacted.  The form displays correctly.  Its when looking at the library, I see blank columns that are populated by the form.

Interesting. The only thing I can suggest is to ensure the same columns are being republished and upgrade settings are configured properly. Your scenario seems to be a problem with SharePoint or Forms Services itself however, so I am not sure if this will solve your problem. You may want to try recreating the library from scratch. It could be a problematic library (happens from time to time it seems).
