I work in the archives of a large institution where I am creating PDF/A preservation copies of documents for ingestion into our digital repository. I've been using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro to convert regular PDFs to PDF/A.

When converting a document (via File > Export > PDF/A), I often encounter this error:

The document has been saved, however, it could not be converted according to the selected standard profile: Convert to PDF/A. Please use Preflight with the profile "Convert to PDF/A" in order to identify those properties of the document which prevent it from being compliant to this profile.

When I open Preflight, choose "PDF-A Compliance / Convert to PDF/A-1a (sRGB)" and hit "Analyze & Fix," I get some variation on this:

PDF document is not compliant with PDF/A-1a (2005)

Structured PDF: Type entry in a structure element not "StructElem"

Structured PDF: Type entry missing

Marked entry in MarkInfo not set to true

I've encountered the same problem many times on many different documents from a number of different departments. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Unfortunately, I don't have access to the source material, only to finished PDFs which I receive from various departments.
