here you go


Hi, everyone:
Here's a very simple questioin.
What's the meaning of "here you go"? Can you give me some examples?
Does it mean "here it is" or "here you are" or else?

    It is used when somebody gives you something you have asked for.
    For example, when you ask for something in a shop, the shopkeeper might say it when handing you the requested item...

    A - May I have that pen, please?
    B - Sure, here you go!

    PS You can also say "there you go", perhaps it's a little more common than "here you go"...but both are fine;)

    Someone asked me in an email to forward a file to him. In my reply, I used "Here you go, please check the attached file". Would "Here you go" sound fine in email correspondence?
