What is happening if you are opening a 9 version report in older version?
It may say,(I guess only) , Some of the things are not compatible, so just remove those only fields and try to add those fields using 8.5 techniques.

CR8.5 CANNOT open CR9 and later reports.  There is NO way to save a CR9 or later report as a CR8.5 report.

CR9 added support for Unicode, removed the 255 character limit on strings and other new features.  Crystal made a decision to not allow the file format to be saved in the earlier format.
