What is the difference between a program file and a data file

A program file may require a data file to work. a data file holds information that a program file may use. For example... a program file might be a shortcut that you click on to run a program such as Notpad but a data file is like a *.doc file type or a .txt which contains data.

A program file may only contain binary operation codes, addresses and embedded data as permitted by the designers of the computer processor that is going to be executing the program. A data file can be in any format as determined by the programmers.
