Actually, you need to use the PlanetPress print driver. To do this, go into Design, then Tools->Data Capture->WinQueue Input, and then click "New". Enter a name for the printer queue, it can be anything you want.

From now on, you'll have a PlanetPress printer queue on your machine. You can then use a WinQueue Input in Watch to manitor that queue, and print to that queue from any applications(in your case, Word). It will convert the job to a pdf, and will use that pdf as the new data stream for the process.

Hope that helps.
