Topic: Exportation to PDF problem – Reader need to “Rebuild”
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 91718

I wrote a simple program that convert our data to PDF. The resulting files are visible in Acrobat Reader. My problem is that a short message is displayed while my files are opened. Using Reader 4.0 the message is: “This file is damaged but is being repaired”. Using Reader 5.0 and 6.0 the message is: “Rebuild”. Note that after this message the result are those expected. I need to fix my program so this message is not displayed. Another problem is that the file can be viewed in the Writer but cannot be saved (error 110).

I paste the content of a simple PDF file written by my program bellow. My file are really similar to the one in Appendix G (Example PDF files) of PDF specification document. I cannot see where is my error, if someone can tell what is wrong with my file then it will be appreciate?
