Terry Cox shares the secret of handling word files with embedded images

The latest issue of Scripophily contained a call out box about a submitted article that could not be used because the images were embedded in the test.

Here is Terry’s solution to dealing with this problem.

  1. Word files have an extension of “.docx.” Rename the file from “.docx” to “.zip.”
  2. Extract the contents like any other zip file. The extraction will create several folders.
  3. One of the folders is named “word.” Inside that folder is a folder named “media.” That is where images live in their native forms. Copy files and use normally.
