In Microsoft Word how can I link to an image from the web which updates?

Is it possible in Microsoft Word (Word 2003 preferably) to insert an image from a url and have that image reloaded from url each time that document is opened?

"Go to Insert - Quick Parts - Field...
In Field Names, select
""InsertPicture"".
In the field
""Filename or URL"", put the URL to
your image.
Check ""Data not stored in
document"". And eventually the 2
""Resize..."" checkboxes if the size of
the online image can change.

That should do the trick."

In Word 2010 instead of "InsertPicture", the field name is "IncludePicture"

Can you turn on macros or VBscript? If not I don't think Word handles files dynamically like that it saves them to the doc file.
