Document File Formats: Microsoft Word Document (DOCX/DOC)

DOCX

DOCX is part of Microsoft Office Open XML specification (also known as OOXML or OpenXML) and was introduced with Office 2007. DOCX is a zipped, XML-based file format. Microsoft Word 2007 and later use DOCX as the default file format when creating a new document. Support for loading and saving legacy DOC files is also included.
