A PowerPoint Template is a file that can contain commonly used settings to make producing future PowerPoint Presentations and Shows easier. POTX PowerPoint Templates are different than the POT version in that they use the Microsoft Office Open XML format.
A file with the DOCM file extension is a Word Open XML Macro-Enabled Document file used in Microsoft Word. It was introduced in Microsoft Office 2007. DOCM files are just like DOCX files except that they can execute macros, which lets you automate repetitive tasks in Word.
