I have a Word 2007 document that is used to create project closeout reports. When completed and approved, the Word document is converted to an Adobe PDF.
I also have an Adobe XML document that is a signature page. This file contains digital signature blocks for the appropriate personnel to provide a sign-off.
The problem: After I convert the Word document to a PDF, I want to insert the Adobe XML signature page at the end of the new PDF. When I attempt to insert the signature page, I get an error.
How do I insert the signature page at the end of the PDF document so that the signatures are valid?
I'm not 100% clear on your issue.
Are you trying to append a signed PDF document to another PDF document? If so, this will break (invalidate the signatures) and this would be expected (and desired) behaviour. Otherwise you could sign a document and append it to any other document to make it look like the signatures apply to a document that was never actually signed.
If you are tyring to use Acrobat to append a PDF document (XML based) created with Adobe Designer, to another PDF document (created by converting a Word document to PDF), you can't do this either, as this is unsupported. Acrobat generates a message informing you of this. See attached graphic.
