Extracting OLE objects attachments in Lotus Notes

I've written an utility in VB .NET that is able to extract file attachments from a NotesDocument and this works fine. I'm having challenges now with a particular email that has a MS Word document embedded into the body, whose content is part of the body. So basicllay it's an OLE Embedded attachment. Does anyone know of a way I can extract this out to the filesystem. This is something I need to do programmatically and not do through a UI because I need to run it unattended in a batch. Even if I get some sample code in LotusScript, I can work with that and try porting it to .NET.

    Is there an embedded attachment? Did you mean an attachment or an embedded objects? Attachments can be extracted to the local hard disk while embedded objects probably not.
