How to imbed picture from web inside Word document

I want to have Microsoft Word 2010 load a picture from the web (http://example.com/myPic.jpg) each time the document is opened.

Document must be in 'word' format. NOT html.

Thanks,
Martin

Let's Go

Add the picture from the Insert menu, using the option Link to File

The screen dump shows the location for Word 2010

In the file name box, put
http://example.com/myPic.jpg

Open in new window

I tried this and it actually downloads the image and imbeds it in the document. At least that's what it does when I use word as part of a eMail Merge using Outlook.

Do you know of a way to force it to ALWAYS dowload it from the web when it is needed?

Thanks,

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
