Need a fix to There was a problem reading this document (117) when trying to save it.

How do I save a document when I receive this error message: There was a problem reading this document (117)

I assume this is happening when you use the "Save As" and not just a normal "Save" operation.

That is the sign of a corrupt PDF file. When you hold down the Ctrl key when clicking on the OK button on this error dialog, you will get some more (technical) information about this problem. What does it report?

There is very likely nothing you can do to fix this file.
