1. What is the difference between CSV and Excel files?
Excel files are created using Microsoft Excel and can contain a wide range of data and formatting. CSV files, on the other hand, contain only comma-separated values and do not contain any formatting. In other words, Excel files are more complex and can be used for more advanced calculations and data analysis, while CSV files are simpler and are better suited for when you need to share data between different programs.
2. Why convert Excel files to PDF?
PDF files are widely used for sharing documents online because they are easily viewable on most devices and do not require any special software to be installed. When you convert an Excel file to PDF, you ensure that your data is accessible to a wider range of people and that it is easy to read on any device.
