.XSD file updates not being seen in a report

I have created a report using SQL Server 2008 R2 in VS2010 that uses a TableAdapter in an XSD file created within VS. Now when I change the query in the table adapter, the changes don't seem to be applied to the report. Is the XSD query information being cached somewhere?

You probably need to to a "Verify Database" in Crystal Reports to pull in the latest changes to the file.  Crystal Reports expects table structure to remain consistent, so if changes have occurred you need to confirm them.  Within the standalone copy of Crystal Reports, it's a simple matter of using the menu Database|Verify Database.  There may be a similar function in the VS2010 version.

I am not using Crystal Reports (although I'm not sure what technology is embedded in Visual studio). I'm just using the built-in capabilities of VS. I have refreshed the database information that VS has read from the server. You may be right in that there may be another way to refresh the definition file, but I have not been able to find it.

sorry about that, this came up in my list of neglected questions and I'm a Crystal Reports expert. I just assumed it was a question regarding the VS2010 version of Crystal Reports.

I have found the problem here. The problem was that the Dataset used when defining a report is not used when executing the report for display purposes. You need to explicitly specify a dataset at report display time.

This explains the behavior well.
