Think the best way to go is with PDF files - so many other programs
can read and import them. So just do a "File/Save As" and specify the
PDF format. Another possibility is PostScript. This is no guarantee of
course that it will work, but is definitely worth a try.

In Word 2008 you can do a Insert/Picutre From/File and then you will
have to choose which of the pages in the PDF file to import.

I have done this on my Mac OS X system with Word 2008, but I assume
that the Windows version of Word has something similar. I hope so
anyway -- let us know how things work out, OK?
