Geetanjali's method is equivalent to Insert|Object in Word, and it works
fine in most situations.

But if you don't plan to edit or update the object, the following gives
a much smaller Word file size:

1. Save the Visio drawing as a WMF file.
2. In Word, Insert|Picture|From File to insert the WMF.

Just like inserted objects, WMF files resize in Word without getting all
