Data not refreshed in Crystal Reports

I am first time trying to create a Crystal reports 11 release 2 connecting to Oracle 11g database. I am using  OLEDB ADO to connect to the database. The database connection seems to be working fine. The issue I have is I created a table in Oracle and inserted some data into it. I can see the table and the columns in Crystal reports when I bring over the columns, it is not showing any data. It just has the Column headers and no data in the details section of Crystal reports. I check in Oracle using Toad and I am able to see the data that I inserted.

Can someone please let me know as to what I am missing?

Thank you

Did you commit the data after insert?

If not, only the session that inserted the data can see the data.

Been a while but make sure you aren't saving the data with the report.
