Topic: File is damaged' error I can't figure out

Hey Guru's,

I'm having problems with a pdf file I created. I get a message when the file opens: "file is damaged, but being repaired." But then the file comes up with the text I had put in it. One thing I noticed is that the number inside the trailer that specifies where the xref starts has to be 1 byte larger then it really is to work. This pdf file just displays a simple word and thats it, yet i get that message ("file is damaged")when it opens up.
Can anyone see anything I'm missing in this thing?
