Hi, I have a report that works. The report is 9 pages. I click design datasource and add some columns to the datasource. Click x on the box to close and save. A message displays "the action just taken has forced the preview view to be rebuilt, you may need to re-retieve your data". Now the report is printing 15 blank pages between the same 9 pages. How do I refresh the design so the report doesn't show blank pages?


I see something similar with Data Window but it is not the same since in my case all of the 9 pages are still printing, there are blank pages between the 9 pages. 


Also, we are using v2019 R1, this version is already EOL'ed
do we need to upgrade to v2019 R3 or, ideally, to v2022 R2

Hi Tom,

What happened most likely is that after you added columns to your data source, Infomaker added those same columns to your existing report layout, to the right of the right-most elements in the existing report, causing them to spill outside of the printable area of a single page. Those blank pages actually contain your new columns.
