[R] R: Including R plots in a Microsoft Word document

Dear Mahmoud,

There are several ways to do this. I find the following the simplest: Right 
click on the graphics-device window in R and select "Copy as metafile" from 
the pop-up menu. Then right-click in the Word document where you want the 
graph to appear and select "Paste."

Perhaps if you could indicate what trouble you're experiencing, there would 
be something more to say.

That's it.
