You can use the standard Copy/Paste functionality to transfer your DWG drawing from AutoCAD to Word (Excel, or other Office application) including any special objects (e.g. AEC-walls), lineweights, texts, etc.
In AutoCAD use the function Edit/Copy (Ctrl-C), in Word then Edit/Paste (Ctrl-V), eventually Paste As. For transferring line widths first enable the lineweight display (the LWT button in AutoCAD status bar). After you paste the drawing, you can double-click on it in Word to edit it in AutoCAD. You can use more advanced transfer options with the BetterWMF utility (see Download).
Do not use the Word function Insert/Image/From file.
You can also use the WMF export from AutoCAD - WMFOUT.
