Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 169826

I have a file printed from Word 2003 to Acrobat 9 Pro. In Acrobat, under PDF Optimizer, I changed the "Make Compatible with" to Acrobat 4.0 & later. However, a client using Acrobat Approval 5.0 keeps getting error message "This file is damaged and can not be repaired." This is one of about 20 forms; all the others work fine except this one. Any ideas? From my research, this seems to be a common error when trying to open a file that isn't compatible with your version of Acrobat, but if he's using 5, that should work right?

PS, very new to working with PDF documents, so please be understanding if I don't know what you're talking about.

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.
