What is the advantage of using a PDF file?

The short answer is that PDF provides a method for someone to share an electronic document with anyone while preserving the integrity of the structure or rather, the look and feel of that document. Prior to PDF (and prior to it becoming the universal standard), this was very difficult to accomplish. In those days, the primary computer operating systems were the Macintosh OS and MS Windows (not including any of the *nix operating systems). So for example, if you wanted to share a business report that you created in MS Word with someone in another organization, you would normally have provided them with the actual native Word format (e.g, .doc). When the individual would open the file (that is, if t even could open it), often times the appearance of the document could change. The change could be minor, or it could affect the entire look of the document. Some of the factors that contributed to this include. differences in Operating Systems (e.g, you created the document in MS Windows and the individual who would try to open it was on a Mac), or t had a different flavor of Microsoft Word (whether t were on Windows or the Mac) or even different versions of MS Word, even though you were both using MS Windows. This doesn’t even include whether or not t had the same font(s) installed on their Operating System as the font that you used to create the document, etc. Hope this helps.
