We have recently launched fileformat.com that is your one stop for guidance about file formats. Besides updating you with latest news from file format domain, its wiki section is continuously getting enriched with contents about different file formats.

Word Processing File Formats

The Word Processing category includes file formats that can be processed by word processor applications like Microsoft Word, OpenOffice Writer and others. Let us have a look at some of these file formats.


Files with Doc extension represent documents generated by Microsoft Word in binary file format. The extension was initially used for plain text documentation on several different operating systems. It can contain several different type of data such as images, formatted as well as plain text, graphs, charts, embedded objects, links, pages, page formatting, print settings and a lot others. The format was popular for all sort of documentation due to the variety of options it offers to users for writing manuals, proposals, specifications, resumes, articles or any similar documents. The File Format wiki article about DOC file format contains useful information about the brief history, short file format specifications and references for this file format.


Docx is well-known format for Microsoft Word documents. Introduced from 2007 with the release of Microsoft Office 2007, the structure of this new Document format was changed from plain binary to a combination of XML and binary files. Docx files can be opened with Word 2007 and lateral versions but not with the earlier versions of MS Word which support DOC file extensions. For further information about the Docx file format, short details about its file format specifications and references, visit the DOCX file format article on file format wiki.


Introduced and documented by Microsoft, the Rich Text Format (RTF) represents a method of encoding formatted text and graphics for use within applications. The format facilitates cross-platform document exchange with other Microsoft Products, thus serving the purpose of interoperability. This capability makes it a standard of data transfer between word processing software and, hence, contents can be transferred from one operating system to another without losing document formatting. Head over to the RTF file format wiki article to get useful information about this format.
