Hang on, Joe!

Yes, the linking of each page into the Word doc, as you
described in a separate message, is a valid approach, but
so is this one.

As long as you have *linked* the wmf files into Word, then
all you need to is re-export each time the Visio diagram
changes. As long as you save each page to the same wmf file,
the pix will update automatically in Word.
