If when opening or printing a PDF created in Space Manager or by a Job Runner process the PDF reader reports that "An error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page correctly. Please contact the person who created the PDF document to correct the problem." the following may help
Find any strings that are displayed on the page and cast them as characters. This does seem to apply to sub selects more than straight fields in the main select statement but it is worth trying all the items.
change (select first c.printnote from contract c join accountlink where accountlink.documentid=iqacdocument.documentid)
to cast((select first c.printnote from contract c join accountlink where accountlink.documentid=iqacdocument.documentid) as char(100))
