A macro is a sequence of commands that decides what should happen when you e.g. click a button in Word. The macros are written in a specific code, Word has their own, but anyone could create macros.

A file including macros needs to be saved as a "macro-enabled word document", with the file extension DOCM, or the macros will be lost.

If you wish to use a file containing macros, you need to activate them when you open he file by clicking "Enable content". Warning: Macros embedded in DOCM files have the potential to store malicious code. Take great care when opening executable file formats received via email or downloaded from websites you're not familiar with.
