Tim Allison commented on TIKA-2069:
-----------------------------------

[~jeffswindle], I should point out that the VBAMacroReader is still relatively 
new in POI, and there are currently 3 open bugs, one triggered by the docm file 
that you submitted.

* [60158|https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=60158]
* [59830|https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=59830]
* [59858|https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=59858]

For now, we'll swallow the exceptions in Tika, but there's much more work to be 
done.  Patches to POI would be welcomed! :)

> Tika supports macro-enabled Microsoft Office documents by extracting metadata 
> and contents, however, macros within the document are not in the metadata or 
> content output.
> Desire is to have the macro text extracted also.
