    Default Save Embedded Documents


    Please help me, any one has idea on how to manage saving embedded files(PDF,Word,excel) in excel or word into a folder. I have below codes but it not saving the embedded files. Thanks

    Sub ExtractEmbeddedObjects()' The following macro extracts the embedded objects from all docx & docm files in that folder and outputs them
    ' to a new 'Embedded' folder in that folder. Each output file's name is prefixed with the parent
    ' document's name.
    'Note: The macro only processes docx & docm files - doc files can't be processed this way (though they could be converted to the docx format for processing).
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Dim SBar As Boolean           ' Status Bar flag
    Dim StrInFold As String, StrOutFold As String, StrTmpFold As String
    Dim StrDocFile As String, StrZipFile As String, Obj_App As Object, i As Long
    Dim StrFile As String, StrFileList As String, StrEmbedFile As String, j As Long
    StrInFold = GetFolder
    If StrInFold = "" Then Exit Sub

    Application.DisplayStatusBar = True
    StrOutFold = StrInFold & "\Files"
    StrTmpFold = StrInFold & "\Tmp"
    'Test for existing tmp & output folders, create they if they don't already exist
    If Dir(StrTmpFold, vbDirectory) = "" Then MkDir StrTmpFold

    'Create a Shell App for accessing the zip archives
    Set Obj_App = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    'Look for docx files to process
