Script to paste Excel table as MS Word picture

I want to write a script so that once I select and copy a table from Excel, the script will paste it into Word as a picture preferably with inline formatting. From various online searches, I feel this is the way to start:

tell application “Microsoft Word”
paste special (table object of selection) data type paste metafile picture
end tell

which I know is not totally correct. I think the “table” keyword is incorrect but I’m not sure what to use. I am having trouble understanding the writeup in Applescript’s Word dictionary to better use the keyword.

I could use some help with the correct wording of the above statement. Thanks in advance.
