Question about Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional

1 Answer

Programmatically creating Postscript and PDF files

I routinely create hundreds of departmental reports. Each departmental report contains numerous sub-reports, one for each of its sub-departments. I create these reports in MS Access and then use VB to generate postscript files.

I then distill these files using Acrobat Distiller. Once distilled I end up with one PDF for each department. Within the PDF there are bookmarks for each of the sub-departments that role up under it. Each bookmark correctly displays the associated sub-department's report. It has been working perfectly for me for years. However, I recently upgraded from Acrobat Distiller 6.0 to Acrobat Distiller 9.0 Professional.

Now when I distill the files it no longer pulls the sub-department reports into the PDF file. I end up with a PDF file for each department, containing all of the correct book marks, but no reports. Each book mark is simply a blank page. I am not sure how to correct. Can anyone assist me? I do have a post script for each report. So I could distill each report individually, but the whole point is to have one PDF for each department containing all of that department's reports.

    Thank you for your suggestion. It would probably work but the problem is I have hundreds of reports, that would take forever. Right now the process is fully automated. I run one macro and it does everything for me. I am assuming that Adobe 9 is simply missing a DLL or I need to change a command within the VB to make it work again. Thanks.

Corel draw 8 is not save as pdf?


It's been so long since I've udes CD8 but I would say it won't support exporting pdf. If I don't remember wrong I exported file as postscript file (*.ps) and then used Adobe Distiller to create pdf-files. But there might have been a trick or a two to notice for correct output :)

Tip

Scan multi-paged document and create a single PDF document


1. You need to install a PDF printer driver on your computer first.
There are quite a few freeware PDF writer programs on the Internet you can download one such as CutePDF.
To download CutePDF printer driver (freeware) click on this link :-
http://www.cutepdf.com/


2. Using your computer SCAN the first page then click on File - Save the image as a jpg file Eg. image1.jpg

3. Repeat the scan the next page and save the image file Eg. image2.jpg

4. Repeat step 3 for the other pages.

5. Close the scanner when finished scaning.

6. Open a Word document then place each image file on a new page in the Word document

7. Save the Word document if you require but not needed.

8. Click on File - Print then select CutePDF printer (or your PDF printer driver) and save the PDF file. This PDF file will contain the multiple pages of the scanned pages.

In Roxio Creator 10, I attempt to burn a disk of a slide show. I receive an error message 8004520C When I check production it reports no problem. This is repeatable.


Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:

  1. Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
  2. When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.

If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:

  1. After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
  2. You have two data burning options:
    • Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
    • Folder Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your project if you need to keep track.

I can't print due to internal error: bad record index 8901:20515


I agree with DCS13 it's a links problem. Maybe not so much one that is missing but one that is incompatible. PageMaker was a PostScript Level2 application, and as most Adobe (owners of PostScript) apps are Level3 since about 2001/2 most generically made items containing postscript (.eps, .pdf, .psd) will likely have problems printing to a postscript device. I assume you're using this for work purposes as if you were a home user it would be most unlikely you have a PostScript printer - unless you're trying to make a PDF of the file.
There's a couple of solutions, all involve removing the incompatible postscript language of your placed images. IF an image/file was supplied to you and it's the culprit, have the supplier remake the artwork at a Level2 postscript (or if it's a PDF a version 4 compatible PDF - Acrobat v1.3); if it's not supplied and maybe clipart or a web image, take it into Illustrator or Photoshop and save it as a relevent file type - be aware of rasterising type if it contains text and try and keep to a high resolution.
It's been some time since you've posted this, so an update would be good - how did you go?

Adobe acrobat v7 can't open file


Do this:
1. Exit Acrobat.
2. Choose Start > Run, and type: %APPDATA%\Adobe\Acrobat\ into the Open text box. Click OK.
3. Right-click either the 6.0 or 7.0 folder, and choose Delete.
4. Start Acrobat and attempt to print.
Note:Acrobat preference files contain application settings such as toolbar arrangements. When you restart Acrobat, new preferences are created automatically based on application defaults. Deleting preference files will not result in the loss of saved documents.

Or, if u have having Quarkexpress in your machine update the version. Quarkexpress also creates PDF files, maybe this is where it was created from
