Embed LaTeX math equations into Microsoft Word

What I ultimately want to do is take the formulas I made, and use them anywhere, like copy/pasting them into MS-Word, or into Excel, or PowerPoint, or whatever else. (This was what I was trying to do originally).

The problem is if I copy/paste from the PDF I made, it will not show up on MS-Word, or it shows up in weird characters. So I was thinking along the lines of an image or something.

Either way I don't care how its done, but I would like to grab the nice formulations I generate with MiKTeX, and paste them into documents I have, how can this be done?

You can instal LaTeXit (Laeqed) . You copy your equation (from your .tex file, I mean latex source of your equation) into the editor from where you can export your equation as an image (.png)
