Updating Sheets from View Frames

I am using AutoCAD Civil 3d 2012.  I have succesfully created a View Frame Group (VFG) from an alignment and then created Plan Profile sheets from that View Frame group.  I did create the sheets in a seperate file from the View Frame group (that is an option when you create the sheets).  It appears that if I change a View Frame using the grips, the corresponding sheet viewport doesn't change based on the edits to the view frame.  I must manually update the sheet plan viewport to align with the edited location of the view frame.  Is there a way AutoCAD will do this automatically or does it just not do that?  Do I have to create the whole sheet set again or can I just recreate that one sheet?  I don't want to do that since create the sheet will create a new profile view.  Any suggestions?

The developer intended the sheets to be drawn LAST, therefore you need to re-run
Thank you

Ah, yes, I was afraid of that.  It makes sense why Autodesk wouldn't do that, but it would be a cool feature if they ever decided to add it.  Oh well, it was worth a try to ask.  Thanks
