I believe the only direct path (no intermediate third-party software) is 
to copy-as an image, such as bit-map, and paste. I just started 
experimenting with MathType 6.5 (not the version that ships with Word). 
It will allow you to paste in a Mathematica equation. It seems to do a 
reasonable job, at least for moderate size and complexity equations. The 
best answer is to probably to export to LaTex, then find some software 
to use the tex in word, but I'm less familiar with that route.

They use microsoft word so I need to copy or export things into rtf first or copy things directly into microsoft word. The problem is that many symbols come out strangely when I try to export or even copy them the tables and math notation comes out like ---

Also, when exporting to rtf, the tables come out as a list of data instead of being in the correct form. Another system used to export this stuff out to rtf correctly by default... How do I set up mathematica to do the same?
