I got used to an old Microsoft Excel and do not want to change anything, but recently I started to get table reports in DOCM format. It was a big problem for me to read such files, and the easiest way to solve it that I've found is Total Doc Converter. I decided to convert DOCM to XLS and read or edit tables in Microsoft Excel. I like the way it handles data, allows making calculations, charts and all I need when analyzing reports.
Total Doc Converter supports DOCM that is a new generation MS Office file type. There are a lot of formats you can turn DOCM to:
There are more formats supports, these are just the ones I use. This program supports batch conversion that is a big present for busy people. Imagine that you can process tens of files in a few seconds. I like this approach! This is how to convert DOCM to Excel files:
This is the way I convert single files. Usually it takes a few seconds to create an XLS copy of a file. If you need to change DOCM to XLS format for a few files, there is a handy way available. Just select them all on the second step and continue as usual. The program can convert a few files together, exporting information from each DOCM file to a separate Excel document. After some time of using this converter I found out how to save DOCM to XLS via command line. It is described in the Help menu.
First I used it in a 30-day free trial version, you can do the same!
