Sounds as if the file is not a PDF, or as it says is damaged.
If you want to look further at this, try opening the file in Word,
Wordpad or Notepad. Copy and paste the first few lines you see into
I can ensure it is a PDF file.when I copy them into word ,wordpad or notepad.but I couldn't see anything and it sound as lots of pages with all spaces.
Thank you very much!
You mean you open them in Word and see nothing but blank space,
nothing at all?
Then the file is not a PDF.
I'm having the same problem when someone else opens the file it is okay when I open it's corrupt & when I send same file it's corrupt for them. Only have problems with 1 sender and others have no problem with this sender. Using winxp office 2000 adobe reader 9.0

Your file is probably being corrupted by the receiver's email. Try either Zipping the fie first or post it on the web somewhere and email a link.
the only thing is I'm the receiver & it only happens when I receive from one sender and the sender supposedly has no problem when sending to others (I've confirmed this in my office) & it has happened multiple times from this sender
Same thing. It could be hit and miss.
Some emails use encoding to condense file size to make sending faster. When the file is expanded later, it doesn't recognize the file as a PDF and corrupts it. The code you posted shows that. The first line should be something along the line of %PDF-1.4.
