What OS and version of Elements do you have?

In Elements 2023 for Windows, I was only able to save a file in the  PDF format Version 1.3 (Acrobat 4.x).

I assume that the purpose of your question deals with printing the file.

Thanks Greg. Yes, I need to save to that standard for commercial printing.
I had Elements for years and it met my needs, but when I went from Windows
7 to Windows 10, my Elements didn't work so I've been on Photoshop CC
subscription and was thinking of returning to Elements, but I need to save
and print as PDF/X-1a:2001.

PDF/X-1a is a standard which requires CMYK. The advice I read (which may be out of date) is that Photoshop Elements does not convert to CMYK. So (if so) this cannot be the right tool for this task.

@Test Screen Name is absolutely right.  Elements cannot handle CMYK. This is one of the major differences between Elements and Photoshop CC.
