How do you share an Excel file with somebody who doesn't have Microsoft Excel installed on his computer? You can either download the Microsoft Excel Viewer from Microsoft's website or alternatively, convert the Excel file to a PDF or Portable Document format for which the Adobe Reader is easily vailable from Adobe's website. Most computers, in fact, have the Adobe Reader installed.
The greatest advantage of converting the Excel file to a PDF file is that the PDF file is difficult to edit and require advanced tools. PDF files are smaller in size and therefore easy to email. Also PDF files print very well.
Now the question: How do convert an Excel file into a PDF file? Easy! Just save the file in the PDF format when you use the 'save as...' command. The training video demonstrates the concept. Of course, you can buy expensive converters to do the same. The choice is yours!
