How to extract embedded excel sheets from .doc files

I am trying to extract all the embedded images and attachments in .doc files using tika parser, everything is extracted except the embeded files mainly trying to extract excel objects from .doc files, the extracted files are empty and have an extension of .unknown.
any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Thanks,
TL
