Topic: Can't merge files (insertpages) - same subset font names (Via Email), 2 Attachments

I have a routine that joins PDFs together, and it has worked for a few dozen seperate files, now it doesn't like one.

The error returned when I do the insert manually is:
"These documents contain subset fonts that contain the same name and cannot be merged."

The evil file in question was extracted from a master catalogue, and a box object added. This is identical to almost every other PDF that has worked for me in the past.

Any clues on how to get around this problem?
