Convert Reporting Services DOC DOCX Word Document to PDF using VB .NET and Open PDF in Adobe Reader


I would like to save a document in a Pdf format with Aspose.Words.

The document was generated with reporting services in doc format and save in docx with Aspose.
Then I insert some picture in it and I want to save the document in Pdf but when I try to open it next, I have this error :

“Adobe Reader could not open doc1.pdf because the file type is not supported or the file is corrupted…”

When I saved it, I put SaveFormat.AsposePdf. What format this is ? Is this normal Pdf ? Why this isn’t aveFormat.Pdf ?


Thanks for your inquiry. Can you please share your input / output documents along with code snippet to narrow down the problem. Please also share Aspose.Words version.


For my code this is very simple :

Dim docPvClient As Aspose.Words.Document = New Document("doc1.pdf", LoadFormat.Docx, "")
docPvClient.Save(docName, SaveFormat.AsposePdf)

For the document, you can see the attach document (in docx).

And I use the version of Aspose.Words.

Thanks you.

Hi Pierre-Yves,

Thanks for your inquiry. While using latest Aspose.Words v.10.8, i could not reproduce this error. Moreover i will suggest you to use latest Aspose.Words. I have attached output Pdf file.

Code snippet:

Dim doc As New Document(“c:/temp/PvRecette_15_1.docx”)
doc.Save("c:/temp/PvRecette_15_1Out.pdf", SaveFormat.Pdf)

Please follow up the link to download latest Aspose.Words.

In case of any ambiguity, please let me know.


thank you. I can’t test it now because my licence is expired.

Hi there,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Just to clarify, you are using an old version which still used Aspose.Words + Aspose.Pdf to convert word files to PDF. A long time ago we started using our own in-built renderer which allowed for much greater fidelity. This is now the SaveFormat.Pdf format. The SaveFormat.AsposePdf has been completely removed from the latest versions.



I actually use an old version of Aspose.Words but I don’t use Aspose.Pdf.
And indeed, in the new version of Aspose.Words there isn’t SaveFormat.AsposePdf anymore. It is replaced by SaveFormat.Pdf instead.


And a big thank you ! It work, I took a temporary licence and It work.

So my probleme was a version probleme.

Thank you.
