Default Corrupted word doc - document.xml corrupted
     Word: VBA

Category: Word: VBA   

Word document containing full semester uni work of my friend. She had NO backups and file was kept on USB key (hard to believe but true).
I have tried a number of recovery tools including onlinerecovery.com, DataNumen, Corrupt Docx etc. They all fail.
I tried renaming as .zip and extracting the document.xml - no luck.
tried hex editor to see if I could see any text - nothing.
I'm not interested in recovering the images in the file (got those ok). Just need the text if possible. (or point me to tools which might work?)
Thank you very much.

Your description suggests the file was corrupted as a result of the USB stick's unsafe removal. Typically, nothing is recoverable by any means from files corrupted in this way. Time to restore a good copy from backups.

None of that is relevant here. Please read the problem description.
