    Crystal Reports has never had the ability to save as a specific version. It always saves in what ever version your Designer is. CR 9 and above can be open by any version above, you'll get a warning pop up indicating some functionality may be lost if saving a newer version to and older version.

    CR 8.5 was pre-UNICODE days, CR 9 and above changed the file format.

    Unfortunately if you make changes in CR 9 to an 8.5 report you cannot go back. Only option is to open an archived version in CR 8.5 or older to update those reports.
