It depends on how the graphics were inserted. When you insert graphics 
in Word you have the option to link them to the source file. If they are 
inserted and linked (or just linked), than in all versions of Word until 
Word 2007 you could select the graphic and press SHIFT+F9 to reveal the 
field code including the path. If they are inserted in the doc (and not 
linked), than Word saved them in the doc itself so there is no path.
