Information about DOCX files and how to open them

The DOCX - Microsoft Word Open XML Document makes it easier to open documents created by the Microsoft Word processing program. It may contain a wide variety of information that may get lost when opened in other programs.

The file can contain such things as:

- Text

- Images

- Styles

- Formatting

- Drawn objects

- Other elements

A number of people use the program and therefore DOCX - Microsoft Word Open XML Document is necessary to be able to read the files. A standard .doc file stores data in a single binary file; a .docx file uses open XML formatting instead, which stores a document as a collection of separate files and folders. Essentially, a .docx file contains 3 folders: Word, _rels, and docProps.

Without the use of DOCX - Microsoft Word Open XML Document, it may be hard to view the document as it was intended to be viewed by the author. The program can be used on a wide array of operating systems including Mac and Windows. Word 2007 and 2008 can open up the .docx files more effectively when using the program.

A .docx file can be renamed to a .zip file to be able to view all of the attributes separately. To view them together without the proper version of Word, then DOCX - Microsoft Word Open XML Document can be used.
