Error trying to save a .doc to a pdf file

Hi,

At my recommendation my company recently purchased aspose.word and aspose.pdf.

*********************************************************************

When I try to generate a .pdf file from a .doc file I get the following error.

An exception of type 'Aspose.Pdf.Exceptions.InvalidPdfFileFormatException' occurred in Aspose.Pdf.DLL but was not handled in user code

Additional information: Startxref not found

************************************************************************

Here is the code I use in my aspx.cs file: -- btw doc.saveToPdf does not come up in intellisense

Aspose.Pdf.Document doc = new Aspose.Pdf.Document(DocLocation);

try

{

doc.Save(PdfLocation + PdfName + ".pdf");

}

catch (Exception ex)

{

string error = ex.Message;

}

Thanks for any help

Hi Sachin,


Thanks for your interest in our products.


The reason you are getting InvalidPdfFileFormatException is because you are trying to convert DOC file to PDF format using Aspose.Pdf for Java. Please note that Aspose.Pdf for Java supports the feature to create PDF file from scratch or you can use the same component to manipulate existing PDF file. Furthermore, as shared my Awais, Aspose.Words for Java provides the capability to convert DOC file to PDF format.


We do have a plan to support PDF to DOC conversion feature in Aspose.Pdf for Java and I am afraid this feature is currently not supported. The feature requested is logged in our issue tracking system as PDFNEWJAVA-33309. As soon as the feature becomes available, we would be more than happy to update you with the status of correction. Please be patient and spare us little time. We are sorry for this inconvenience.
