Add file association

When I push OpenOffice to a computer, the file association .docm does not automatically associate with it, so i was wondering if there was a script to add the file extension, and to associate it with open office writer.

It would be much cleaner to do that via the installer. And talking of clean, you could take the trouble to record which application - if any - has the extension assigned to it, so that that assignment could be restored when OO is uninstalled.

Anyway, associations simply comprise a bunch of registry entries so you could do this with a .REG.
