Not nearly enough information, I'm afraid.
Verison and patches installed for ID? OS?
Is this object from the master page, or placed directly on the document page? What sort of object? If it came from a master page, did it get overriden at any point?
What is the document setup? One page, or multiple pages per side if it's a folder?
Is the file OK in preview mode in ID and only bad in the PDF?
Screen captures would really help. Make sure frame edges are showing in ID. You can embed a capture into a post using the camera icon on web page editor:
I'm sorry, quite new here and forgot to tell you a bit more about version etc. InDesign CS5 and Mac OS X Lion.
The object is not placed in the master but on a page in the brochure on which the master page has been applied first.
Everything looks fine when working in the InDesign workspace, it 's just when I export it to PDF that the problem appears.
The strange thing is that when I send for example another object on the same layer to the back of that layer, the problem appears on that object of text box or...
Hope these will do?
Have you installed the 7.0.4 patch? If not, do that first and try again.
By which I mean try the export again, if that wasn't clear. The screen shots were fine.
Seems to me as if I did cause I updated it yesterday so that isn't the solution
Would you be willing to share that spread for testing?
Off course but could you tell me how I can do this?

I've received the file, and I am unable to reproduce the problem using any of the PDF export settings I tried (PDF/X-4, High Quality Print and Smallest file Size) which leads me to think that possibly the file is corrupt on your end (if you sent me a different file -- does the one you sent really behave badly?). If you break the link to that object (by temporarily moving or renaming) do you get a successful export? If not, does it solve the problem if you export to .idml, then open that? (see Remove minor corruption by exporting)
If that doesn't help, it might be that your preferences have become corrupt. see Replace Your Preferences
It seems to work! Thanks a lot!
What seems to work?
Replacing the preferences
