The way I've done it is to save the Visio drawing as a Windows
Metafile. I then open the Word doc and do Insert--> Picture-->From
File and choose the Visio file. You can't alter the Visio picture in
teh Word doc itself...if you want to, you have to go back into Visio,
alter it, and go through the process again.

Hope this helps-
