Working with Word attachments - how to get text

I'm attempting to retrieve the text using the mail API from a Word attachment (I'm using BES + the attachment service in case that's important).

I can get hold of the attachment & it reports the correct filename and is of type UnsupportedAttachmentPart

Calling getContent() on this returns an object of type DocViewAttachmentPartModel ... for which I can find no information at all...

Does anybody have any idea how to get hold of the text of a Word attachment ?

thanks for any help


Multipart cont = (Multipart)m.getContent();

System.out.println("# attachments: " + cont.getCount());

if(attachmentNumber < cont.getCount()) {
        UnsupportedAttachmentPart bp = (UnsupportedAttachmentPart)cont.getBodyPart(attachmentNumber);
        System.out.println("filename: " + bp.getName());                               
        System.out.println("size: " + bp.getSize());
        if(bp.getName().equals(filename)) {                               
                attachText = bp.getContent();
