Recently I have been encountering a problem the second time I try to create a document using "print to Adobe PDF" I have a database that creates reports. I have been using Acrobat 6.0 for several years to produce these reports. Last year I thought I solved the problem by deleting the ACR*.TMP files but now its back and I can't figure out how to solve it.

Here is my setup: fresh install of Acrobat 6.0 with with 6.0.01 patch. Win XP with all current patches, 50gb of free space on C: drive and 190GB of free space on the network drive that the report is created on. Here is the error message:

%%[ Error: invalidfileaccess; OffendingCommand: showpage ]%%
%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%

The first time I run the report is works just fine. The second time I get the error. Sometimes if I use another file name, it will work. Sometimes not,

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
