Topic: Corruption of pdfs created by scanners after web upload
Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 164896

When scanning in documents and uploading through internet explorer via a web application sometimes one of the pages
will be blank or black when viewed and will give an Abode Reader message that says:
"Insufficient data for an image."

There's no rhythm or reason to when a pdf will have this issue after upload.

In the web application it has been debugged and the file data watched from the point it is attached to the web page on the client side within Internet Explorer to the moment it first shows up on the web server before the http request has been processed the document is already corrupt so the process between Internet Explorer and the web back to the server seems to be when the corruption is occuring.

The document before uploading does not have these issues but could this still be an issue with the PDF file creation by the scanner and third party software in which it is not formatted correctly to be uploaded via the web through IE?
