Problem with newer version of Adobe PDF as OLE attachment



Legendary Poster
We have received a few Adobe PDF files from external sources recently that have a PDF version 1.7, Adobe Extension Level 3 (Acrobat 9.x).
If we try to attach these as OLE media objects in E1, we get an error message stating "Error trying to upload a file - maximum file size has been reached." (See attached image of error message box)
The file attachment I am currently having trouble with is only 927KB in size -- well below the 2.0MB size limit that I've seen in some other documents on the subject.
I believe that there is a compatibility issue between our tools release ( and this PDF version, and am currently going back and forth with Oracle support about this.
Has anyone else run into this issue and/or found a solution to this problem?

Thanks in advance!
