Convert DOC to DOCM

What is the best way to convert .doc files directly to .docm format?

How to convert doc to docm file

Converting Microsoft Word Documents directly to Microsoft Word Macro-enabled Documents (.doc to .docm conversion) is a super straightforward task and numerous word processors and converters support such attempts.

Your best bet is obviously using Microsoft Word itself, as it allows users to export its DOC documents in DOCM format. Should your original file, however, not contain any macros, such conversion is obsolete.

Alternatively, you may use one of several available third-party word processing tools, such as Ability Write or AbiWord, which will also let you export DOC files in DOCM document format.
