I have an InDesign v16.3 file that I created a week ago and have been able to export as a PDF file up until today.  I have tried saving it as an IDML file and exporting it as a PDF/X-4 with no luck.  Any thoughts?

Try exporting 50% of the pages - if it's a 24 page book - try page 1-12 - then try 13-24.

whatever side it fails on is where the error is.

Keep halving your doc until you find the culprit page(s).

 

From here you'll have to dig into the page - perhaps an image needs resaving. Perhaps a corrupt Text frame. 

You'll need to remove half the objects and repeat the process for that page to find what's causing it.
