That is the weird thing. There is no transparency yet doing that works.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for uploading. FixMyPrintFile fixed it correctly.

The table is a grouped object and is part of a transparency group. The blending colorspace of the transparency group is RGB.

Use the prepress module (If you have the PDF update). In there you can use the inks tab to remap colors to any separation.

As Joe said it had to do with transparency. Specifically that the blend space was RGB. Once the transparency was removed or you use a fixup on that page to set the blend space to device gray you are good to go. But it was the blend space. All you need to do is to run an inventory report from the preflight module. It'll tell you almost everything you want to know.
