Getting error ORA-00904 invalid identified

SLES10, Oracle on IBMz9, app server is Dell RHEL4, 9i client (32
bit server), report server Windows/SQL Server 2000

We are trying to test our application against a production size 10g
database.  The actual production database is still 9i and will NOT be
upgraded to 10g.  Most of the application works very well.  We do have some
reports that are throwing the ORA-00904 invalid identifier error and I
haven't been able to find anything on MetaLink that is of any value yet.  I
did just find out that the reports are running on a Windows server pulling
the data into SQL Server and doing the processing there before returning the
results back to the application.

Does anyone have any suggestions where I can look for this?  The developer
who manages the Windows/SQL Server side of things insists it's the 10g
database and not his side of the house and I have no way to prove/disprove
his assertion.

Thanks for any help/suggestions.
