Subject MS Access export file...

This is kind of an odd question, I'm sure - I hope someone can help me.  I am 
working with an Access DB that is holding binary data in an OLEObject field.  
This binary data is being dumped to xml (base64 encoded first), and sent to a 
Unix environment.  

On the Unix environment, I am parsing the xml, base64-decoding the binary 
field, and finding a lot more that I bargained for - the file was there, but 
with a bunch of extra header/footer gibberish.  I was guessing that the 
entire OLE object was dumped, and I had hoped that the POI project could help 
me restore the original file.  

Unfortunately, I am at a loss.  I have tried using a POIFSFileSystem with the 
file, but it is reporting an error: "Invalid header signature"

Any thoughts / suggestions / references?

Thanks for any help!
