Use the Insert Symbol dialog (see
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/General/InsertSpecChars.htm). Select the Arial
Unicode MS font, and select "Enclosed Alphanumerics" in the Subset dropdown.
You'll find there all the numbers from 1 to 20 in circles. For some reason a
zero in a circle follows all the circled letters.

If you use these a lot, you can assign keyboard shortcuts to them by
clicking the button at the bottom of the dialog.

Or.. and it depends how small you want the circle - you could open the
drawing toolbar, click the oval & hold down shift as you draw it, then click
the fill color (paint pot) and click none. you can adjust the position of the
circle when selected by using Ctrl & the arrow keys.
Just another way .....

Moreover, if you right-click on the AutoShape and choose Add Text, a textbox
will be inserted in the circle.
