PDF/A format

edited September 2016 in General
which PDF property of report are valid for PDF/A format?
I tried validator
and I get this list of errors:
Validating file "Report.pdf" for conformance level pdfa-1b
XML line 1:19: Input is not proper UTF-
Bytes: 0xBB 0x3F 0x22 0x20.", 1
The value of the key Encoding is Difference but must be
WinAnsiEncoding or MacRomanEncoding.
The document does not conform to the requested standard.
The document contains fonts without embedded font programs or encoding
information (CMAPs).
The document's meta data is either missing or inconsistent or corrupt.

I used Preview - Print dialog - Save to File check box.

Thank you

    Hi Roman,

    Which version of ReportBuilder are you using?

    1. Please upgrade to the latest version of RB in order to obtain all
    PDF/A related fixes.

    2. If you are still getting errors when validating, please create a
    simple example report that we can export to PDF/A here and track down
    any issues. Send the example in .zip format to

    Best Regards,
