Thanks, Fred! I tried several approaches, and EPS was definitely the best for us. (By the way, EPS is listed in the Save As list as well as the Export list.)

If your deliverable will be a PDF of your document, or if you can guarantee that the Word file will only ever be printed on a PostScript printer, you can insert EPS graphics into the Word file (just look at the bottom of the Files of Type list in the Insert Picture dialog). And then you only need to know that Acrobat considers the process of producing an EPS to be a *Export* operation rather than a Save As.  
Or you could try Word's Insert>Object command to insert the PDF file as complete object.
Or you could try using the Export>Word Document command from Acrobat.
