I have been creating tables in excel and then saving them as PDFs in order to place into an indesign file. They have all worked fine until the last one which was a wider table (ie took up more columns) and i am getting the message:
Adobe Indesign - Failed to open the PDF file.
I have tried ticking the "Show import options" box and it still doesnt work.
There is something wrong with the PDF. You can try remaking it from excel, or you can try opening and reserving it in Preview. Document Geek: Using Mac Preview as a Workaround when Acrobat Pro Won't Open a PDF File
