Illustrator and pdf - Adobe Illustrator Windows

When I save an illustrator file as a pdf, the doent size changes. It may be smaller or larger than the original illustrator file. Therefore when I send the pdf for viewing, you will think I made the wrong size file. This is very frustrating. Any help would be greatly appreciated....

    I have Illustrator CS 11. Go to file, doent set up, insert width and height. That's it! Save as Illustrator, then as pdf. Pdf does not remain the same size(sometimes it does, sometimes not) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Illustrator CS1 will base the crop box dimension to the artboard dimension PLUS the bounding area of ALL artwork elements that hang off the artboard.

    With nothing selected, go to object>crop area> make to set the crop area to the artboard dimension. This will make all save to pdf crop box dimension to be the artboard dimension. (really, it becomes the crop area dimension set which happens to be the same size as the artboard.)

    Note: The rules have changed again for CS2.
