Hi everyone,

At opening .pdf file Adobe Reader says: "pdf file is damaged and repair is in progress".

Is there a solution for this situation?

thank you a lot...

Hi Raymond,

1. Does this happen to all / how many of the PDF files you have in test in question. 
2. Post a copy / link to the PDF file in question for review.

Thanks. -K

Step 1
Open your favorite Web browser and click “File” from the toolbar.

Step 2
Click “Open” and then click “Browse” to find the PDF file on your hard drive. Select “All Files” from the Files drop-down menu and select the “PDF Filename” of the file you think is corrupted.

Step 3
Click “Open” and then click “OK.” If the file opens, then the server is the problem, not the file. If you get an error message, you can try to repair the file.

Raymond,

I have removed claybrook's links to a software product as it appears to be a spam link posting. 

Remember - please provide more information about "At opening .pdf file Adobe Reader" and you should get a few useful suggestions.

As I did say - if it was just for one file, or a few - I would be happy to just fix them anyway. Presuming you didn't mind if I viewed the content.

Alternatively, if you are talking about damaged files that you are continuously receiving or creating - then this is a different story. 

However....we do not appreciate spam postings as direct links to commercial software product.

That message basically means that Reader has detected that the cross-reference (xref) table is out of sync with the actual position of the objects within the file and that Reader is (re-)building an xref table on the fly rather than using the one stored within the file.

Because you are using Reader, you are not going to be able to re-save the file with the updated xref table, so the xref table will get rebuilt every time the file is opened, but after the xref table is rebuilt in memory, it shouldn't affect how the document is displayed.
