By going into the SqlDataSource item in the Toolbox, I can "edit" an existing data source.

However, you select the existing datasource and it provides a blank query. I would like to, from time to time, alter the query. It seems like I have to recreate it. That is not unmanageable, but it would be nice to be able to alter data parameters and preview the impact on the report.

Am I missing something?

If you want to edit the query - right click over the DataSource component in the Component Tray and press Configure

Or...If you want something like "live preview".. You can add the report to a report viewer and change the parameters from there.
