"PDF already open" warning when exporting PDF.

    Would it be possible to warn us that an existing PDF is open BEFORE going through the whole PDF export process? I export a large number of .mxd's to PDF daily, and this pops up quite a bit. Currently ArcMap creates the PDF, and if it is already open, it just abandonds the whole endeavour. Can we get a warning at the beginning of the export process?

    Or  "PDF is already open, Save PDF as...?"
    Or "PDF is already open on USERXXXXX, Save as?"

    Thanks.
