Office Open XML representation (.DOCX) is the default file format for documents created by Microsoft Word as of Word 2007.
This (along with the other Office Open XML items PPTX and XLSX) was initially standardized as ECMA-376 in 2006. Three versions of ECMA-376 have been produced; the second version corresponds to ISO/IEC 29500:2008, approved as an ISO/IEC standard in April 2008. Changes to the standard between 2008 and 2012 were primarily corrections based on individual defects reported as implementation of the standard proceeded and required to ensure functional interoperability with existing applications. They do not introduce new functionality.
