Extract Embedded OLE Objects

Embedded OLE objects can be converted in two ways:

Using the File Extraction API, the OLE object is first extracted from the main file and saved to disk. It can then be converted by making a separate conversion call.

Using the HTML Export API, the main file is converted to HTML and the OLE object is converted to a graphics file that is referenced in the HTML file.

The File Extraction API can extract embedded OLE objects from the following types of documents:

When an embedded OLE object is extracted from its parent file, the location of the embedded file in the original document is not available. The parent and child are extracted as separate files.
