Thanks everyone!

That worked! I seldom go into those property areas and forget they exist.

Cheers, Karen

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] Removing the PDF/UA Identifier in Acrobat Pro DC

I had to do this a couple of times a year or so ago. I went into Acrobat Pro, Properties, Additional Metadata and then I deleted the PDF/UA entry and saved it and it gets rid of the PDF/UA identifier. That is the only way I could do it.
