File cannot be found when trying to open emailed fdf file

Hello all. I'm starting to lose my mind here so I thought I'd ask the community for any help. I'm using Acrobat Pro X. I have a PDF that a new hire is supposed to fill out. All the fields work and save just fine. There's 2 buttons at the end of the document set to email certain fields to a specific email address. When either button is clicked, an .fdf file is attached to a new outlook message. The problem is when the recipient tries to open the attachment, Adobe Acrobat X Pro (and Reader XI) comes up with the following message:
"The file you are attempting to open contains comments or form data that are supposed to be placed . This document cannot be found. It may have been moved, or deleted. Would you like to browse to attempt to locate this document?"
The original file is located on a mapped network drive (the same drive letter on both computers). The same message comes up even on the computer the email was sent from. I saved the document with "Enable Additional Features" enabled. I'm getting close to wits end. I need to be able to send the email outside the network but don't want to include the entire PDF as it has confidential information. Any suggestions?

So the recipients will need an original copy of the PDF in order to import the fdf? I know they'll get confused with that. Is there a way to just email the fields in a text file?

  • IPhoto says 'Files Cannot Be Found' when trying to import from SD Card

    Hello all,
    I have this stupid little problem with my iPhoto.
    Every time I plug my SD card to import pictures I took from trips or whatnot to iPhoto, it says 'Files Cannot Be Found' but when all said and done, the files are actually there. I don't know what the problem is, but it's very annoying and I don't know how to fix it.
    I highly doubt it's my camera setting and want to know if there's anything I can do within iPhoto to change that stupid little error message I get every time I try to import my photos.
    For example, when I try to import like 40 pictures, at least 7-8 would alert me saying 'File Cannot Be Found'. I hit okay button and goes to next file... I have no idea what it is and it really kills me. Can anyone help?

    This can occasionally happen, if iTunes cannot find your iTunes library. Do you keep your iTunes library on an external drive? Then check, if this drive is properly mounted. Does it appear on your desktop?
    Sometimes simply rebooting will resolve problems with a drive that is not accessible. Also, check the settings for the  location of your iTunes Media folder in the iTunes Preferences > Advanced panel:

  • "application cannot be found" when trying to open certain files

      Recently i upgraded my computer to Mavericks recently and I've been having a problem opening certain files.  In one day I upgraded to Mavericks and I also updated my Adobe programs to the Creative Cloud.  Ever since then I cannot open any of my Adobe files.  They are all saved as under the CS4 legacy format.  I uninstalled CS4 after installing the Creative Cloud.  Every time I try to open one of these files previously created in CS4, whether it is a photoshop ot illustrator file, I get the error message "The application cannot be found".  I also can see no preview or thumbnails for the files.  I talked to Adobe Support and we went through a process of deleting my preferences and it didn't work.  I restarted my machine and it worked.  It worked for a day and now after starting up my machine today it is saying the same thing again.  After a while it just out of nowhere started working again.  I'll be clear and say that I was logged into my adobe account and there were no network interuptions. 
    By the way, the new versions (Creative Cloud) of the adobe programs all work just fine and If I save something then it works fine.  It is only when trying to read a file from a previous format. 

    If you are attempting to start Adobe Creative Cloud by opening a file created by its previous version, open the Adobe Creative Cloud app first, then choose Open from its File menu and select the old file. The files you are attempting to open were associated with the version you used to create them, which is now gone.
    After opening them, save them again. From then on, opening them will probably open Adobe CC directly.

  • Getting message "file cannot be found" when trying to play music in iTunes

    When trying to play ANY music in my iTunes Library I get the message that the file containing the music cannot be found. I recently updated to the latest version of iTunes - is this the problem or is it something else?? I thought that at least the songs purchased from the iTunes Store would play but they do not. I receive the same message which asks if I want to attempt to locate the file. I click yes and that takes me to the iTunes Library which gets me nowhere. Anyone have any ideas????? I have used iTunes for years with no problems before this.

    Hi Patricia,
    First, try Repairing Disk Permissions. Quit all open applications. Launch Disk Utility, it's in your Applications/Utilities folder. Select MacintoshHD 10.x.x in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab, then click Repair Disk Permissions. Only takes a few minutes to run, then Quit Disk Utility. Reboot your PBook and launch iTunes. See if you can play a track...
    If not... with iTunes open, select iTunes Store, then from the Menu Bar, click Store/Authorize Computer and see if that works. If that doesn't work ...
    Quit iTunes. Try dragging the com.apple.iTunes.plist file from the HD/Users/YourName/Library/Preferences folder to your Desktop. Launch iTunes and see if you can play tracks. If you can, drag that file back to the Preferences folder. If not, drag that file to the Trash, empty the Trash and reboot. It could be your iTunes preferences file is corrupted and needs replacing. Your Mac will create a new pref file for you the next time you launch iTunes.
    Hope something helps...

  • When I try to open a picture in iphoto a message tells me the file cannot be found. How do I find the file?

    When I try to open a picture in iphoto a message tells me the file cannot be found. How do I find the file?  It does not happen with all the pictures.

    Is you library a "referenced" or "managed" library:
    That message is generated when a library is a "referenced" library and the location of the files have been moved from where they were when originally imported into iPhoto.
    Are the photos that this is happening to in the same Event(s)?
    What system are your running?  Where is your library located? How much free space do you have on your boot drive?

  • I get the following error when trying to open a pdf file... '*pdf.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read"

    I get the following error when trying to open a pdf file... '*pdf.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read". I am able to open pdf files in IE and other programs.

    I am encountering the same problem -- though with .qfx files from my bank. This worked fine in Firefox 31 ESR, but since upgrading to Firefox 33.0, I get the "<name>.qfx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read" when I attempt to download. (I should add that downloading PDF statements from the same site works fine, and that the qfx downloads work fine in IE and Chrome.)
    I tried safe mode, it is still broken. Tried v34 beta, no luck. I reverted to version 31, it works again.
    I guess I will stick with the older version until a solution is found...or just use an alternate browser to download my financial data.

  • Photoshop CS3 locks up when trying to open an EPS file

    Hello everyone. I have a problem with CS3 locking up when trying to open an EPS file. The files were created in Quark 4.0. Not sure if it has anything to do with my new computer, which has Microsoft XP 64 bit. There's another computer in my office which has CS4 that can open these files. Please help..!! Thank you.

    Try installing a PostScript printer on your XP64 system. For some reason this often seems to fix issues with EPS handling...

  • LookoutDirect crashes when trying to open older .lks file

    I am providing a new WinXP Pro SP3 PC with LookoutDirect v4.5.1 (build19) to upgrade/replace and older lookout system at a water treatment plant.
    Being my first Lookout system I worked through the tutorials and everything worked great.
    I then tried to open the .l4p file that I had copied from the existing system.
    Lookout gave a message stating "The file C:\....l4p was created by an older version of Lookout. Please recompile it by opening the source file....lks"
    I then try to open the existing .lks file and Lookout crashes. I get the standard Windows "Send Error Report" screen. The details say that the crashed Application is cbl.exe.
    Details:
    Finally I get a message that says "Cannot open specified file!"
    Is there any way to repair the file? It may be possible that the existing system was NI Lookout and not LookoutDirect. Does anyone know if there is a restore path for the project?
    Is it possible that I didn't correctly back up the existing project?
    Thanks!
    Nick

    That can complicate things 
    I only have back to Lookout 5.1 in my library.  However, a few examples on NI are for Lookout 4.0:

  • I get an error when trying to open certain PDF files in Lion on Mac.

    I am having trouble opening CERTAIN .PDF files on my MacBook Pro. I am running Lion. The file is attached to a Gmail message as a standard .PDF file.
    This is my error:
    "File "XX" cannot be opened. It may be damaged or use a file format Preview does not recognize."
    I have also downloaded Adobe X reader to see if the compatibility issue is just with Preview. I get an error that the file is "damaged" and cannot be recovered. Meanwhile, the file downloads/opens just fine on Windows XP Office and iOS (on my iPad). So I am thinking that it must be some sort of compatibility issue with Lion.
    So far, other .PDF files open on my MB Pro. I haven't tried all of my saved .PDF files, but I did try a couple.
    Anybody have any suggestions? There seems to be an error with this particular file opening in Lion, but not with the same file opening on another operating system.

    The issue mysteriously resolved itself. I shut down the computer, and the next day I booted back up and tried to open the same file, and everything was OK. Very bizarre, since I had opened it previously on this same MacBook. Anyway, anyone have any insight into what happened?
