I am trying to open one PDF file that both Adobe Reader 10.1.7 and Acrobat will not allow me to open, because they keep telling me, "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."I have run the repair function for both Adobe programs to no avail when attempting again to open the file.Currently I am operating with MS 7 Professional and have never had any problem opening any other PDF file.What do I need to do to correct this problem, so that I can open the file?

Typically that error message is associated with a corrupted PDF. A "fresh" copy of an uncorrupted PDF is most likely needed. .Be well...
Thank you, David. That's what I told the person who sent me the PDF initially. I'll pass along your comment and have him re-create that file.
