In Word, select Edit: Links. Select all the graphic links. Click Break Link.
If you want to be able to keep the links and still send the document
somewhere else, select the Save picture in document option, which will
retain the links and still allow others to view the graphics. When you
update a graphic, update the link, and send the new version.
