Gillian --- I'm arriving late to the party, but have you tried saving the file out as MIF and then opening the MIF file? That often works for me. Other hacks are to save it out as text (or even RTF) and then open that file (often requires retagging or indexing, but sometimes that's the lesser pain.)

And it doesn't happen to all PDFs, just specific ones that all come from the same source document, which is a legacy document. It's been updated many times. And I have rebooted, it doesn't help. Any suggestions?

An inability to delete or move a file is not indicative of file corruption, but rather, that some program is holding the file "open." That program may be on your system or perhaps the server itself or some other user on the network. Note that sometimes even though you think you have ended a run of Acrobat, it still is running for a while and may have some files open. Another possibility is that you put the file into a network directory for which your access privileges are setup to allow you to open existing files or even create files in that directory, but not delete or otherwise mess with file attributes. Some simple things to try: Reboot YOUR computer. If your computer was the culprit, i.e., some program holding it open, then the reboot should clear it. If the reboot doesn't clear the problem and you KNOW that no one else on the network is accessing that file, you should have your network administrator check your access privileges on the server and specifically for the directory in question. You clearly need read, write, file create, file deletion, file attribute modification, etc. privileges for that directory. - Dov > -----Original Message----- > Gillian Flato wrote: > Guys, > > Frame 7.0 p495 > Acrobat 7.0 Professional > on a network drive > > I am having a problem where when I create a PDF, it becomes corrupted > and I can't delete or move it.
