Make sure you show the import options when you place the file.
Thank you, I think I understand the idea of "place" (which is what I would call "paste") but where do I find the import options? are they are part of the Word file when I create it or are they somewhere in InDesign?
There's a checkbox Show Import Options in the Place dialog box. You can also hold down the Shift key when you choose File > Place.

The two are not at all the same. Paste involves copying text to the clipboard and then pasting from the clipboard. Place is an import operation.
