Why don't you simply export your file to PDF instead?

Can you specify if the whole document is the problem or a specific page? If it is a specific page, what is on that page?

Stop using Postscript. It's an archaic method.

Just export the PDF.

Don't use postscript in modern times, no creating PDFs via print and postscript, nor placing EPS files. Avoid postscript.

I think there may be a corruption in a placed vector file, very likely an EPS file

If it's one particular page, look at what you have on that page. Try deleting objects and see if it continues to fail to narrow it down as to what specific item is causing the problem.

If you find an offending graphic, open and resave it (also: if these ARE old EPS files, save them as .AI files instead to bring things up to speed)

 

(Internally, a "moveto" Postscript command dictates where the next object in a graphic should start (x,y), so the fact it's failing on this relatively ordinary command means there is something amiss with the coordinates supplied. Resaving the file should correct that.)

Thank you for your solution. Probably this is the reason, the graphic corruption. I will see if I can redo the graphics again.

If it is an EPS, open it in Illustrator and save as PDF or AI. Or let it run through the distiller and use the PDF instead.
