SSRS Field Added in Stored Procedure not showing in Report Designer

I create a report based on a stored procedure in SSRS. After creating the report, we needed to add a new field, so I altered the stored procedure and checked it was working fine which it is.
I then went into SSRS and refreshed the fields in the dataset. It shows the new field in the dataset. However, when I try to add the field in Report Designer, it does not show up. I tried deleting the dataset and then adding a new one, but it still is not available in Report Designer. If I execute the procedure in the dataset it does show all the results including the new field.
What do I need to do to get the field to be available in Report Desiger?

What do you mean with Report Designer?  Report Builder or Visual Studio/Business Intelligence Development Studio?

Edit: okay, probably BIDS, sorry for this silly question... (I always use BIDS as tool name)

What happens if you create a new report and use the SP in there?  Does that work fine?

It works fine if I create a new report; it's updating existing ones where there is a problem.

PS, yes, it's BIDS. I should have specified!

Make sure your tablix/whatever is pointing to the correct dataset.
Make sure the column name does not have any spaces or punctuation marks other than underscore ( _ ), which would force you to surround it with square brackets [ ] when referring to it, and perhaps sort it in the bottom of the combo box that selects columns.

Once the dataset recognizes the new column it *should* be automatically available for use.

but it still is not available in Report Designer.

Do you not see it when you click the + icon next to the dataset name in the Report Data window, is that an accurate description of your issue?

Actually, just solved it. I had to refresh the fields in the dataset under Solution Explorer as well as in Report Data. One would think that doing it in one would also do it in the other, but this is not the case it would seem!

In Solution Explorer?  Ow, are you using a Shared Dataset?  Well yes, that would indeed be needed then...

Karl_markAuthor Commented:
It would seem so! Thanks for your assistance anyway; sometimes just having a conversation prompts one to find the solution!

Well, sure...  Next time though don't forget to mention critical details like that, it will help both us and you to come to a working solution a bit faster :)
