I want to start a new table for the New Year. Is there a way to key the old report to the new table?

It's quite easy. Open the report for editing, and make sure that "properties" and "report navigator" are selected in the "view" menu. From the report navigator select the report itself (rather than any of the components). In the data tab of the property sheet, change the "content" to the new table name. Save the report to a new name (something like "2019 report"). If the new table has the same structure as the old one, it should all work fine.
