Removing a variable from a blueprint that a data asset is based on will prevent that data asset from being opened.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the editor
  2. Create a new C++ class based on DataAsset
  3. In the .h file, add the Blueprintable specifier to the UCLASS()
  4. Compile
  5. In the editor, create a blueprint based on your DataAsset c++ class
  6. In the blueprint, add a new variable of any type and compile
  7. Create a new data asset (Miscellaneous->Data Asset) based on your derived blueprint class
  8. Open your Data Asset blueprint class, delete the variable you created and compile
  9. Try to open the DataAsset

Result: It is not possible to open the data asset after deleting the variable from the blueprint it was based on.

Expected: The data asset would update the changes made in its parents blueprint.
