What is a DOCM file?
A .DOCM file is a Microsoft Word Document with Macros file.
The DOCM files used by Microsoft Word are in Open XML Format and have macros enabled. They are created with version 2007 and later of the Microsoft Word word-processing program.
DOCM files are similar to DOCX files, but they contain macros and VBA scripting. In addition, like DOCX files, DOCM files use a combination of XML architecture and ZIP file compression. This compression allows the files to be stored in a smaller size, freeing up space on a user's hard drive and making it easier to distribute the files online.
