"Copy as" metafile works pretty good. Curves get a bit ragged, I guess 
because metafile's don't store enough digits. You can also get in 
trouble with fonts if you move to a different machine. Better is to 
Export (kernal function)  to EPS and import into word. Downside is that 
you cannot see the graphic on the screen (there's a placeholder), but 
the print resolution is perfect. There are some threads on exporting the 
fonts. You can also Export to various bit-map file types to whatever 
resolution looks smooth enough. Then you can also see the graphic, but 
at the cost of maybe a big file size.
