Can you save the DWG file as WMF?

You may want to download and install the converter pack update for your version of Windows.

I don't believe that dwg is a default conversion format that is installed when you install Office. You may want to run the installer again, and manually select image conversion formats to load.

The DWG file extension is an AutoCAD format. As far as I am aware you cannot import this directly into Word unless it has been exported from AutoCAD into a Word friendly format like BMP. This also has its pitfalls because if the orginal drawing was created by the user on a black background (most CAD users do) then this is how it will appear in your Word document.
Do you have access to AutoCAD? If you do I can let you know the steps for changing the background before exporting the file.
