It could have white text? Impossible to know why without seeing the file.
There is no white text for sure. Actually, the pdf is generated from jasper reports. For the same report, its working fine for the excel format and there are lots of data.
I may not be able to share the pdf as it contains sensitive data.
You can guide me of what could have gone wrong so that i will work out here.
Thanks a lot.
What get you when you print the document? Can you generate an example without sensitive data?
That's simply an empty PDF. Has nothibng to do with Acrobat. You may want to contact the folks at Jasper Reports about why their application is creating it that way.
It is a problem of iText 2.1.0. Looks like white text on white background. When you use the accessibility feature of Adobe Reader you can see the text.
Good work Bernd. I didn't even think of that. Tried making a text selection in Acrobat but got nowhere with it.
Thanks for the reply.
If iText is the issue, then i would have ideally faced the same issue for all the reports. I am having this issue only for 1 or 2 out of 20 odd reports.
The layout etc are the same for all the pdfs.
Is there any issue that the fonts generated by itext are not read by acrobat?
What is that accessibility option? If you can see the data in that, what does it actually suggest?
Also, when i use the preview document option, i can see the data but not all.
The view report suggests as attached.
Please guide me further to narrow down the problem.

In the preferences of Adobe Reader activate the category Accessibility and replace the document colors.
I'm facing more or less the same issue. Only some reports are shown blank and not always.
Did you solve this issue?
Are you facing this issue in iReports?
Thanks for answering.
We can use IReport, but normally we edit the report by hand and save it in a xml file.
Then, using Jasper Report classes, our application compiles the report and fills it with the actual parameters and data.
One use of reports in our application is for sending a curriculum vitae by email. The curriculum vitae is the report. Users are telling us that sometimes the curriculum vitae attached to the email is a blank PDF, but we are no able to reproduce this bug.
If you have set the IgnorePagination attribute to true, then change it to false and try. That solved the issue at my end.
I have raised this issue on the jasper forums but no response yet.
I have experienced this issue only for large sets of data.
I'm afraid we have not set any IgnorePagination attribute to true, and the default value for this attribute is false, according to our dtd.
