Embedding Excel Graphics into a Word Doc.

I am presently exploring the ability to create a standard Word Template and with a macro, be able to launch Word, reference the Template and auto populate it with specific Graphics that have been generated out of the Excel WB.  I am using Office 2010.  Does anyone have a sample of such a setup I could study to get an understanding of how this may be accomplished?

Thank you,

So that we don't go down the wrong track, can you provide a sample workbook, please?

I was actually looking for a sample.  

To clarify, I have a very extensive Excel WB that from specific data input, it creates a maturity model, a gap analysis and a host of other graphical outputs.  Right now, I have a "Print" function which snags each of the Graphic Images and outputs them to PowerPoint.  What I'm interested in doing is understanding how I could embed those same graphics in a Word Doc.    So the idea would be to create a Word Doc. Template, export the graphics (via range names) to be embedded in the Word Doc. within Text that was 80% standard and 20% then customized.

Hope that helps.

Always love Dave's work!  I'll read this.  I was hoping for a sample from someone.... but it may be a misplaced request given it would probably have confidentially issues.

Much thanks,

This piece is great and includes a link to download the macro and some working examples
