Thanks everyone for the helpful posts. I now can save a document into PDF/A format.

But one last q. - I saved a word document into PDF/A format and it looks exactly like any ordinary PDF document. Is there a way to tell the difference between standard PDF from PDF/A file?

Identification

by christianshiflet In reply to One Last Q.

If you open the file in Adobe reader you can go to File, Document Properties and on the description tab it will show as PDF version 1.4 (Acrobat 5.x). That pdf version (1.4) is (essentially) PDF/A. That is one way to identify them.

MS Word 2007 or above

Actually the Acrobat is a little bit complicated for us to manage, if just for creating pdf files, why not just copy the contents in the word 2007 or above to save as PDF format.
And other PDF converters could also help us on such issue, for example, the nitro pdf, nemo pdf.
