Crystal Reports Error after mapping from a table to a view

I have a report that has a table being mapped ( all field names match ) the table is built in  SQL Server. mapping goes off without incident. Seems to map without even launching the mapping tool. In other words I select the two data items.....table to view and click update.

Then I try to run the report and get the following message error. Does anyone know what this means..

How are you doing the mapping?
Do you mean you are setting the data source location?

Have you tried to do a VERIFY DATABASE after doing the "mapping"?

I am mapping the regular way. I am simply going to Set Location and choosing the old table pointing it to the new view selecting and clicking update as stated.
Yes I am setting the Data Source Location

Yes and the database says it is up to date then I get "Failed to retrieve data from the DB error"
Then the message error about the query...Cannot Determine Queries.

The report is blank. No data returns. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot.....?

Can you build a new report against the desired database?

Does the report run against the old data source?

After mapping, check the database and the links

This seems to work now I am not sure what did it but the report is returning data. It seemed to regain its "reporting composure" when I did a series of removing tables and then saving after i had replaced the tables. Very odd. Don't even know if this is worth posting to the knowledgebase.

I do not know what to do with this question. I think a network issue permitted the report and functionality to work properly.
