This one took more research and experimentation than I originally thought it would. There are a lot of posts out there on the internet that ask how to do this, but not many answers that actually work. I found the key that finally lead to a solution here. What really threw a wrench in the gears was the fact that Microsoft completely changed the file format between Office 2007 and previous versions, so the code to extract a Word 2003 document does not work to extract a Word 2007 document. It was definitely a challenge, and also a bit of fun (programmers are strange like that).
