Refresh the datasource on a data view web part in Sharepoint Design

  Asked By: Lillian    Date: Jan 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3394

I have a data view webpart which displays results for a SQL query. The
users would like to add a new field to the data view so I updated my
data source to return this column. When i click Show Data on the source
it dislays the new column but it is not updating the data view. It is
like the data view has taken a 'copy' of the orginial data source. I
can't see any property on the data view to associate it with the new
data source. Can this be done or do I need to recreate the data view
again just to display an extra column?

The data  source for the DFWP does use a copy  of the original data
source. You will need to modify the XSL property  of the Web Part to
include the new field.
