Storing files in the pdf format has many advantages. You can help ensure other users will see your document the way you intended with the right fonts and the page elements all in the “right place.” Pdf documents are not always as easy to change as other files, and that can be a benefit if you are distributing a document you don’t want anyone to modify.
In case nobody ever told you, Microsoft offers a download at www.microsoft.com that allows you to save Microsoft Office documents as pdf files quickly and easily. Just search www.microsoft.com for “2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS.”
Your IT professional can help you install the add-in and you can save your documents in the pdf format in no time.
