Updating custom BA report from 2012 data to 2013 data

In BA desktop 10.2, we have four custom reports based on the 2012/2017 BA demographic data, and would like to update them using the 2013/18 data.   I am hoping there is an easy way to globally change the data source for all variable references in the report from the 2012 data to the 2013 data.  I can't seem to find it.

We have installed the 2013/2018 data and copied our custom report templates into the "My Output Data\Report Templates_USA_ESRI_2013" folder.  In the Fusion Report Designer, in editing mode, I used the "Add Standard BA Data" link to add the 2013 demographic data variables - they show up in a group named "demographics_2", while the existing "demographics" group is the 2012 variables (see attached screenshot).

Is there a way globally edit the data source reference for all variables in a report from "demographics" to "demographics_2", so they refer to the 2013 data instead of the 2012 data?  Or do I need to manually change the variable reference one at a time for all variables included in the report?  ...in all four of our custom reports?

Thanks
