Microsoft Word Macro-enabled Document (.docm)

A DOCM file, introduced in Microsoft Office 2007, is a type of document used by Microsoft Word. It stands for "Document with Macros" and is similar to the more common DOCX file format. However, there's one key difference: DOCM files can contain macros. Macros are essentially scripts written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) that automate repetitive tasks within Word documents. This capability can be incredibly useful for users who need to perform complex formatting or data manipulation tasks.

When handling DOCM files, it's crucial to recognize that macros can be exploited for malicious purposes. As a security measure, Word typically opens these files with macros disabled, prompting users to enable them only if they trust the source of the document.
