Invalid Convert Method
March 28, 2012 09:12AM
Hello,

I have two questions. The first deals with the subject. When I try to run the command line version of the program to merge 9 pdf's into 1 I get the error Invalid Convert Method 53. WHat am I doing wrong?

The second questions is that I would ideally like to run the command line version of the program to merge 9 pdfs from within an access program. The problem is that the pdfs are on a shared server \\host4. Can I run the command line version and have it merge files that are on another server?

Thanks

Hello Mary

Thank you for the reply. I am using PDF Combine. I got it to work but I had to change my programming a little. I think the problem may have been long file names. I wanted to ideally merge all the files into a file called all.pdf and place it on a server called Host2:

\\host2\BenefitsDB\Cobra PDFs\45-ADAMS-CLAYTON-ZZGAC-ZZGAC-3-29-2012

So inside of the 45-ADAMS...folder would be placed the all.pdf file. When that did not work I figured it might be because it could not work with a remote server so I changed it a little to try and save the file on the local hard drive with a similar name

C:\CobraPDFs\45-ADAMS-CLAYTON-ZZGAC-ZZGAC-3-29-2012

It still did not work. But when I changed the location to:

C:\CobraPDFs

It worked fine.

I am going to be buying the product probably monday or tuesday (I need permission from the higher ups) because it really works even with that work around. So ideally if I could cut out the step where it saves to the local machine that would be nice (In my program I have it running the command line to merge the files into C:\CobraPDFs\all.pdf, and then I have it copying those files off the local machine and placing them into the directory:

\\host2\BenefitsDB\Cobra PDFs\45-ADAMS-CLAYTON-ZZGAC-ZZGAC-3-29-2012

on the server. Like I said it is not a big deal if I have to do the extra stop but if there is a way around it that would be great (it is not going to effect our purchase, I am still going to buy it because it works!)

Thanks
Andy
