What's the best way to attach an open Word document to an open Outlook email?

Using Windows Vista at work: Once I finish making changes to a file in Microsoft Word 2007, I want to attach the file to an email in Outlook 2007. Currently, I am opening subfolder after subfolder getting to it either on the desktop or in the attach file dialog in Outlook, but that's annoying. Please advise.

Microsoft Word Button->Send->E-Mail is not the answer because it starts a new message in Outlook, and I often want to attach the file to a reply or to a message I've already started. Does Word have something like a "locate file on disc" option? Then I could easily drag it to my message in Outlook. Or maybe there is a way to "Copy as Path" from within Word? Then I could paste the file location into Outlook.
