A "live" word doc

    I use visio a lot and embed the results into a word doc. When I have to go back and update the visio diagram I update it in visio and then copy and paste it into the word doc. Is there a way to link the object in word to the actual visio document? If not is this a feature in the next version of office?

    From Word

    Insert -> Object -> Create From File (Link to file = checked) -> Enter your visio file name

    Us old foggies call this OLE (Object linking & embedding)

    Make sure you have "Link to file" checked. Then you can edit the external file & have it automatically updated in your Word doc.
