Infopath 2010 External XML Data Connection

I have created a very simple form with a recieve type secondary external data connection to an XML file.  Everything is work fine however when the XML file is updated with new data it is not reflecting in the form even  after closing the form and re-opeing it.  I created a button to refresh all secondary data sources which did not work.  Any ideas?

Probably need to go through the setup wizard again.

2 ways to do XML files default is to embed and save it in the template. This does not update except when you update the data connection.

Other way is not to embed, which is what you want so it queries the file each time.
