Word parser not capturing tables in the word file

While using the Word Parser node to parse a word file and then the Document Data Extractor to pull out the body text I am finding that the paragraphs and sentances are captured but none of the tables or information in the tables is showing up in the extracted text.  Can anyone sugest a better way to pull out all of the information in a Word file?  I am using a company supplied/installed version of KNIME and so don't have a Tika Parser available....unfortunately.  Is there another set of nodes that might work?  Thanks! 

Hi Kraybill,

I am afraid besides the Tika parser (and Word parser) there is no other node to read Word files.
