Item failed to convert or Skipped file

Hi,

When I am converting my emails from Outlook into pdf searchable portfolio's, it works for one folder (sometimes about 300 emails), then the next folder I try to archive Skips files with error message "Item failed to convert".  If I completely shut-down my pc and start again, I can sometimes get another folder made into pdf before the errors start again.  I have tried converting small folders too, but it seems once I start getting the error message it is hard to get the pdf maker to work without getting error messages.

I really like this email pdf portfolio it is perfect for my needs, can anyone help please?

Many thanks,

Jenny

Old thread but maybe this will help others along the way.

I did 3 different things so I am not sure which fixed it. But they were as follows:

1) Ran a repair of the Adobe Acrobat program

2) exported the folder to a PST and then opened it in a local Outlook Profile as an Outlook Data folder (basically exporting from Exchange and makinge a local copy to work with).

3) removed all calendar and reminder entries since I did not intent to PDF those anyway.

It converted properly after that whereas before that it ran into one error and then errored on all the remaining items.

Dear Category5,


I have tried all steps that you mentioned, but I still get the issue described by the initial quesiton, i.e. that at some point in the conversion process it begins to "Skipping file" and then does the same for all subsequent mails.

 

Do you have any idea what I might do?
