"Doing a p&l statement on Word instead of Excel?"
It's a statement, so as such is meant to be more or less unalterable (hence the use of PDF). It obviously isn't completely unalterable, since you can convert it back and forth to word, but you can't do it out of the box, you have to buy a separate program to do it.
One can convert an excel spreadsheet into a .pdf formant and make it unalterable too.
