Format error


#1

I have a PDF format file which I use regularly on (daily basis). I don’t remember how I saved it last time but, when I open it now it gives me an error “Format error: not a PDF”.

Can you help? Any idea how to open or fix PDF file?

I am using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
Windows 8.1

Thank you

Does the PDF file creation process generate open-able files as of now?


#3

It’s quite possible that the file got corrupt during saving.

What is the file extension? Does it say “.pdf” or something else?
