Report Edits and Workflows in Main Sheet (Workflow not working)

My team makes edits to a report instead of the Smartsheet that houses my large database. I am finding that information goes bi-directional between my report and my database but the workflows in my database are not copying rows to other sheets I share out. I tested my database workflows by changing data in the main sheet and they are all working ok but for some reason when an edit is made in the report the workflow is not recognizing the change in the database Smartsheet. Is it not possible to use workflows (trigger when changes are made to certain fields and action is to copy to another sheet) when using a report to edit fields?
