Crystal Reports 2008 Designer does not reflect changes made to views or stored procedures, even after refreshing the database and those views/procedures within Crystal.
While a horrible user experience, there is a proper method to accomplish this.
Based on trips from this helpful article:

- If dealing with a stored procedure, you will be asked to enter parameters; enter correct ones.
- Crystal Reports will undergo a verification process, during which time it will find the extra fields and adjust the report accordingly.
No idea why this is separate from (and ambiguously named compared to) a right-click and “refresh”, but it does the job.
