>>> But in crystal 9.0 there are less options then in enumeration

Some of the options available in 8.5 were removed from version 9+.  

There is no simply solution for what you want to do.  Some report documentation applications exist ( you can find them here: http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html ) but these are commercial apps.  If you want to export the layout you're going to have to try to reverse engineer the .rpt files - Business Objects certainly isn't going to tell you how to do it!

As I've already said the only way you're going to do this is the reverse engineer the .rpt files (or buy an application from someone who has already done this work) - there is no easy way to copy out the report format to xml.  Sorry if you don't like that answer, but it is accurate.
